Reef Fishes of the East Indies
ENCORE: the effect of nutrient enrichment on coral reefs. Synthesis of results and conclusions.
TLDR
The ENCORE experiment investigated responses of coral reef organisms and processes to controlled additions of dissolved inorganic nitrogen and phosphorus on an offshore reef at the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef, Australia, and showed that reef organism and processes investigated in situ were impacted by elevated nutrients. Expand
Sharp genetic breaks among populations of Haptosquilla pulchella (Stomatopoda) indicate limits to larval transport: patterns, causes, and consequences
TLDR
Strong genetic mosaics in a species with high dispersal potential highlight the utility of genetics for identifying regional patterns of genetic connectivity between marine populations and show that the assumption that ocean currents will provide ecological connectivity among marine populations must be empirically tested in the design of marine reserve networks. Expand
Phylogeography and limited genetic connectivity in the endangered boring giant clam across the Coral Triangle.
TLDR
The recovery of 3 distinct evolutionarily significant units within a well-studied taxonomic group suggests that biodiversity in this region may be significantly underestimated and that Tridacna taxa may be more endangered than currently recognized. Expand
Molecular synapomorphies resolve evolutionary relationships of extant jawed vertebrates
TLDR
This tree confirms that chondrichthyans are basal to all living gnathostomes, that lungfishes (Dipnoi) are the closest living relatives of tetrapods, and that bichirs are the living members of the most ancient family of ray-finned fishes. Expand
Comparative phylogeography of two seastars and their ectosymbionts within the Coral Triangle
TLDR
Comparisons of phylogeographical patterns from mitochondrial COI sequences among two co‐distributed seastars that differ in their adult habitat and dispersal ability suggest that habitat differences may affect the manner in which species responded to Pleistocene sea‐level fluctuations, shaping contemporary patterns of genetic structure and diversity. Expand
Patterns of Symbiodinium distribution in three giant clam species across the biodiverse Bird’s Head region of Indonesia
TLDR
The hypothesis that giant clams can associate with different symbiont types based on local environ- mental conditions is supported. Expand
First Comprehensive Ecological Survey of the Banggai Cardinalfish, Pterapogon Kauderni
A three week expedition to the Banggai Islands archipelago in Indonesia was completed in an attempt to determine the geographical distribution of the Banggai cardinalfish, Pterapogon kauderni, asExpand
COMPARATIVE PHYLOGEOGRAPHY OF THREE CODISTRIBUTED STOMATOPODS: ORIGINS AND TIMING OF REGIONAL LINEAGE DIVERSIFICATION IN THE CORAL TRIANGLE
TLDR
Comparison of patterns of phylogeo‐graphic structure and gene flow in three codistributed, ecologically similar Indo‐West Pacific stomatopod (mantis shrimp) species suggests that these processes may promote lineage diversification within the Indonesian‐Australian Archipelago, providing a potential mechanism for the center of origin. Expand
Reef fishes of the Bird’s Head Peninsula, West Papua, Indonesia
TLDR
A checklist of shallow (to 60 m depth) reef fishes is provided for the Bird's Head Peninsula region of West Papua, Indonesia, which contains the world’s most diverse assemblage of coral reef fishes. Expand
