Descending to the twilight-zone: changes in coral reef fish assemblages along a depth gradient down to 65 m
In contrast to the abundance of literature on the relationship between fish assemblages and habitat structure in the upper 30 m of coral reefs, the deeper (>40 m) parts of coral reefs are rarelyExpand

Grazing pressure on coral reefs decreases across a wide depth gradient in the Gulf of Aqaba, Red Sea
Algae are an essential component of healthy coral reefs and serve as the base of the food chain and as a living habitat for numerous organisms. Herbivorous fish play an important role in coral reefExpand

CONFIDENCE INTERVALS AND HYPOTHESIS TESTING FOR BETA DIVERSITY
Under R. H. Whittaker's “multiplicative” perspective of species diversity, regional (γ) diversity is viewed as the product of within-assemblage (α) diversity and among-assemblage (β) diversity. AnExpand

PREY FLUX MANIPULATION AND THE FEEDING RATES OF REEF-DWELLING PLANKTIVOROUS FISH
Prey availability for site-attached planktivorous fish is delimited not only by the density of their prey, but also by the speed of the waters that carry the prey. The effects of both flow speed andExpand

Functional changes of the visual system of the damselfish Dascyllus marginatus along its bathymetric range
Shallow-water zooplanktivorous fish rely on their vision for foraging. In shallow water, feeding efficiency decreases in dim light and thus the fish cease foraging at crepuscular hours. CreaturesExpand

Quantitative species-level ecology of reef fish larvae via metabarcoding
The larval pool of coral reef fish has a crucial role in the dynamics of adult fish populations. However, large-scale species-level monitoring of species-rich larval pools has been technicallyExpand

The Effect of Adult Aggression on Habitat Selection by Settlers of Two Coral-Dwelling Damselfishes
Coral-reef fishes experience a major challenge when facing settlement in a multi-threat environment, within which, using settlement cues, they need to select a suitable site. Studies in laboratoriesExpand

Correlations between Circadian Rhythms and Growth in Challenging Environments1[OPEN]
Environmental conditions are associated with different aspects of circadian rhythmicity in wild barley. In plants, the circadian system controls a plethora of processes, many with agronomicExpand

Estimating the rate of biological introductions: Lessepsian fishes in the Mediterranean.
Sampling issues preclude the direct use of the discovery rate of exotic species as a robust estimate of their rate of introduction. Recently, a method was advanced that allows maximum-likelihoodExpand

Evidence for Cohesive Dispersal in the Sea
As with many marine species, the vast majority of coral-reef fishes have a bipartite life cycle consisting of a dispersive larval stage and a benthic adult stage. While the potentially far-reachingExpand
