Comparisons between the diets of four abundant species of elasmobranchs in a subtropical embayment: implications for resource partitioning
The diets of one ray species (Rhinobatus typus) and three shark species (Carcharhinus cautus, Negaprion acutidens, Rhizoprionodon acutus) undergo size-related changes and differ among these speciesExpand

Do the dietary compositions of Acanthopagrus butcheri in four estuaries and a coastal lake vary with body size and season and within and amongst these water bodies
The dietary compositions were determined for Acanthopagrus butcheri in four estuaries and a saline, coastal lake, which vary in the extent, if any, of their connection to the sea and amongst which,Expand

Inter‐ and intraspecific partitioning of food resources by six large and abundant fish species in a seasonally open estuary
This study has tested the hypotheses that the dietary compositions of the six large and abundant fish species in the 46 km2 basin of a seasonally open estuary (Wilson Inlet) will differExpand

Comparisons between the influence of habitat type, season and body size on the dietary compositions of fish species in nearshore marine waters
Fish were collected from over bare sand in nearshore shallow waters at three sites that varied in the extent to which they were exposed to wave activity and which were located within a 45-km stretchExpand

Do the habitats, mouth morphology and diets of the mullids Upeneichthys stotti and U. lineatusin coastal waters of south-western Australia differ?
Two benthic carnivorous goatfish (Mullidae), Upeneichthys stotti (max total length, LT= 179 mm) and U. lineatus (max LT= 257 mm), were trawled from the inner continental shelf waters of WesternExpand

Ichthyofaunas of a temperate estuary and adjacent marine embayment. Implications regarding choice of nursery area and influence of environmental changes
Abstract A fine-mesh seine net was used at regular intervals to collect fishes from the entrance channel and basin of the Blackwood River Estuary (south-western Australia), from Deadwater Lagoon,Expand

The benthic macroinvertebrate community of the upper reaches of an Australian estuary that undergoes marked seasonal changes in hydrology
Benthic macroinvertebrates were collected from the substrata of nearshore, shallow waters (depths 30‰ in autumn. The most abundant species, the galeommatid bivalve Arthritica semen, contributed >25%Expand

Resource partitioning by four species of elasmobranchs (Batoidea: Urolophidae) in coastal waters of temperate Australia
Abstract Four species of stingarees (Urolophus lobatus, U. paucimaculatus, Trygonoptera personata and T. mucosa) were abundant in samples collected from over sandy substrates in four regions alongExpand

Differences in feeding ecology among three co-occurring species of wrasse (Teleostei: Labridae) on rocky reefs of temperate Australia
The foraging behaviours and dietary compositions of three co-occurring labrids (Ophthalmolepis lineolatus, Notolabrus gymnogenis and Pictilabrus laticlavius), which are conspicuous on rocky reefs inExpand

Partitioning of food resources amongst 18 abundant benthic carnivorous fish species in marine waters on the lower west coast of Australia.
The volumetric contributions made by prey and plant material to the diets of 4 elasmobranch and 14 teleost species, collected seasonally by trawling from waters along ca. 200 km of the lower westExpand
