The fish and prawn communities of a Malaysian coastal mangrove system, with comparisons to adjacent mud flats and inshore waters
Results of this study indicate that tropical coastal mangroves function more importantly as feeding grounds than as nursery grounds for juveniles of commercially important fish species, and confirms that coastalMangroves and mud flats are important nursery areas for commercially important prawn species.

The influence of fish cage aquaculture on pelagic carbon flow and water chemistry in tidally dominated mangrove estuaries of peninsular Malaysia.
The impact of floating net cages culturing the seabass, Lates calcarifer, on planktonic processes and water chemistry in two heavily used mangrove estuaries in Malaysia was examined. ConcentrationsExpand
Relative importance of benthic microalgae, phytoplankton, and mangroves as sources of nutrition for penaeid prawns and other coastal invertebrates from Malaysia
Analysis of C stable isotopes in sediments indicated that mangrove detritus was generally more abundant within the tidal creeks than offshore, and stable isotope analyses suggest that benthic microalgae constitute the other major dietary component for prawns living in tidal crees. Expand
Sediment accumulation and organic material flux in a managed mangrove ecosystem: estimates of land–ocean–atmosphere exchange in peninsular Malaysia
Rates of sediment accumulation and organic matter decomposition in mangrove forests of different age were examined at the Matang Mangrove Forest Reserve in peninsular Malaysia. These data were usedExpand
Contribution of mangrove detritus to juvenile prawn nutrition: a dual stable isotope study in a Malaysian mangrove forest
Comparative stable C and N isotope ratios of tissue and gut contents indicate that prawns basically assimilated what they consumed, as the contribution by phytoplankton became progressively more important. Expand
Diversity, extinction risk and conservation of Malaysian fishes.
The study provides recommendations to governments, fish managers, scientists and stakeholders to address the increasing and unabated extinction risks faced by the Malaysian fish fauna. Expand
Sustainable utilization and management of Mangrove ecosystems of Malaysia
Mangrove ecosystems of Malaysia are found largely on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia, the southern coast of Sarawak and the eastern coast of Sabah. Malaysian mangroves are largely of theExpand
Faunal diversity in Malaysian mangroves.
A number of diversity indices highlight the low diversity of epifaunal taxa in the recently cleared site, perhaps a consequence of the drier substrate surface in the absence of a tree canopy. Expand
Worldwide genetic differentiation in the common fouling barnacle, Amphibalanus amphitrite
The genetic differentiation that exists in a common, widely distributed fouling organism with great dispersal potential is highlighted; future antifouling research should take into account the choice of lineages. Expand
