The fish and prawn communities of a Malaysian coastal mangrove system, with comparisons to adjacent mud flats and inshore waters
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.
Sediment accumulation and organic material flux in a managed mangrove ecosystem: estimates of land–ocean–atmosphere exchange in peninsular Malaysia
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.
The influence of fish cage aquaculture on pelagic carbon flow and water chemistry in tidally dominated mangrove estuaries of peninsular 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 the…
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.
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.

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.
