The tropicalization of temperate marine ecosystems: climate-mediated changes in herbivory and community phase shifts
Climate-driven changes in biotic interactions can profoundly alter ecological communities, particularly when they impact foundation species. In marine systems, changes in herbivory and the consequentExpand

Latitudinal shifts in coral reef fishes: why some species do and others do not shift
Climate change is resulting in rapid poleward shifts in the geographical distribution of many tropical fish species, but it is equally apparent that some fishes are failing to exhibit expected shiftsExpand

Global Human Footprint on the Linkage between Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functioning in Reef Fishes
A global survey of reef fishes shows that the consequences of biodiversity loss are greater than previously anticipated as ecosystem functioning remained unsaturated with the addition of new species.Expand

Food habits of fishes in a seagrass bed on a fringing coral reef at Iriomote Island, southern Japan
Abstract To clarify the feeding habits of fishes in tropical seagrass beds on coral reefs, the gut contents of 53 fish species, collected in an Enhauls acoroides-dominated bed at Iriomote Island,Expand

Diet of combtooth blennies (Blenniidae) in Kochi and Okinawa, Japan
Combtooth blennies (Blenniidae) have a wide array of diets, including coral polyps, fish scales/mucus/rays, and detritus. However, there is limited knowledge about the diet of some species. WeExpand

Evidence of ontogenetic migration from mangroves to coral reefs by black-tail snapper Lutjanus fulvus: stable isotope approach
Mangroves are often considered to be important nurseries for coral reef fishes, yet this assumption has rarely been tested. At Ishigaki Island, southern Japan, black-tail snapper Lutjanus fulvusExpand

Surface-Potential-Based Silicon Carbide Power MOSFET Model for Circuit Simulation
Transistor models have been playing a key role in designing efficient power converters. As the operating frequency of the converters becomes higher, transistor models need to represent physicalExpand

Random PCR‐based genotyping by sequencing technology GRAS‐Di (genotyping by random amplicon sequencing, direct) reveals genetic structure of mangrove fishes
While various technologies for high‐throughput genotyping have been developed for ecological studies, simple methods tolerant to low‐quality DNA samples are still limited. In this study, we testedExpand

Tropical Fishes Dominate Temperate Reef Fish Communities within Western Japan
Climate change is resulting in rapid poleward shifts in the geographical distribution of tropical and subtropical fish species. We can expect that such range shifts are likely to be limited byExpand
