Mangroves are an important fish habitat, but little is known of their nursery function and connectivity to other habitats such as coral reefs. Here, the present status of knowledge on connectivity between non-estuarine mangroves and coral reefs by postlarval coral reef fishes is reviewed. Only since the year 2000 has more indirect evidence been obtained for such connectivity, largely based on studies: (1) quantifying juvenile/adult fish abundances in these habitats to deduce ontogenetic… CONTINUE READING
