Use of mangroves by fish: new insights from in-forest videos
The fact that mangroves use was more restricted than expected implies that the nursery value of these systems is likely to be conferred at a whole-ecosystem scale, and emphasises the need for a detailed, region-specific understanding of the specific values of the different components of mangrove ecosystems.

Influence of marine and freshwater connectivity on the dynamics of subtropical estuarine wetland fish metapopulations
Estuarine wetlands have received little study in dry tropical and subtropical areas despite the fact that unpredictable rainfall makes their temporal continuity tenuous. In fact, many of theseExpand
Marine nurseries and effective juvenile habitats: an alternative view
A classification system to identify important marine nursery habitats to aid in directing future research and to provide managers with a tool for the protection of important habitats is proposed, but it is believed that this approach is oversimplistic and does not account for many key aspects of nursery ground value.

Temporal dynamics of fish assemblages of natural and artificial tropical estuaries
We sampled the fish fauna of 9 small natural estuaries and 2 constructed estuarine lakes in Australia’s dry tropics over 15 mo to detail the dynamics of fish assembly structures over time. TheExpand
Ecological drivers of spatial variability among fish fauna of 21 tropical Australian estuaries
Tropical estuarine fish assemblages often show characteristic spatial variation at the scale of individual estuaries but there is no clear grouping of estuaries based on variables such as proximityExpand
Breeding biology of the Blue TitParus caeruleus in a montane mediterranean deciduous forest: the interaction of latitude and altitude
The Blue Tit population evaluated during five years in a montane deciduous oak forest central Spain found a similar timing of breeding than in central and North European populations, but the low clutch size is in agreement with the latitudinal tendency in clutch size observed by Lack. Expand
Repair and revitalisation of Australia׳s tropical estuaries and coastal wetlands: Opportunities and constraints for the reinstatement of lost function and productivity
Tropical fisheries are in decline around world as a result of diverse anthropogenic threats. These threats are intimately linked to biodiversity and conservation values because of the heavyExpand
Fish Utilisation of Wetland Nurseries with Complex Hydrological Connectivity
The nature and diversity of temporal utilisation patterns at a species or genus level over three annual cycles in a tropical Australian estuarine wetland system are examined to understand the patterns and subsequent processes driving fish assemblage structure in such wetlands. Expand
Chapter 19: Vulnerability of coastal and estuarine habitats in the Great Barrier Reef to climate change
This is Chapter 19 of Climate change and the Great Barrier Reef: a vulnerability assessment. The entire book can be found at http://hdl.handle.net/11017/137
Importance of Mangrove Carbon for Aquatic Food Webs in Wet–Dry Tropical Estuaries
Mangroves are traditionally considered to provide important nutrition to tropical estuarine consumers. However, there is still controversy about this, and the extent and importance of these inputsExpand
