Local Replenishment of Coral Reef Fish Populations in a Marine Reserve
The scale of larval dispersal of marine organisms is important for the design of networks of marine protected areas. We examined the fate of coral reef fish larvae produced at a small island reserve,Expand

Larval Export from Marine Reserves and the Recruitment Benefit for Fish and Fisheries
Marine reserves, areas closed to all forms of fishing, continue to be advocated and implemented to supplement fisheries and conserve populations. However, although the reproductive potential ofExpand

Spatial and temporal patterns of mass bleaching of corals in the Anthropocene
Not enough time for recovery Coral bleaching occurs when stressful conditions result in the expulsion of the algal partner from the coral. Before anthropogenic climate warming, such events wereExpand

Relative accuracy of three common methods of parentage analysis in natural populations
Parentage studies and family reconstructions have become increasingly popular for investigating a range of evolutionary, ecological and behavioural processes in natural populations. However, a numberExpand

Dispersal of Grouper Larvae Drives Local Resource Sharing in a Coral Reef Fishery
In many tropical nations, fisheries management requires a community-based approach because small customary marine tenure areas define the spatial scale of management [1]. However, the fate of larvaeExpand

Within-reef differences in diet and body condition of coral-feeding butterflyfishes (Chaetodontidae)
Given the highly stochastic nature of larval supply, coral reef fishes often settle in suboptimal habitats with limited access to prey or other resources. Variation in the availability and qualityExpand

Reef-Fidelity and Migration of Tiger Sharks, Galeocerdo cuvier, across the Coral Sea
Knowledge of the habitat use and migration patterns of large sharks is important for assessing the effectiveness of large predator Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), vulnerability to fisheries andExpand

Habitat associations of juvenile versus adult butterflyfishes
Many coral reef fishes exhibit distinct ontogenetic shifts in habitat use while some species settle directly in adult habitats, but there is not any general explanation to account for theseExpand

Recovery without resilience: persistent disturbance and long-term shifts in the structure of fish and coral communities at Tiahura Reef, Moorea
Disturbances have a critical effect on the structure of natural communities. In this study long-term changes were examined in the reef community at Tiahura Reef, on the northern coast of Moorea,Expand

The status of coral reef ecology research in the Red Sea
Abstract The Red Sea has long been recognized as a region of high biodiversity and endemism. Despite this diversity and early history of scientific work, our understanding of the ecology of coralExpand
