Acute environmental disturbances impact on habitat quality and resource availability, which can reverberate through trophic levels and become apparent in species’ dietary composition. In this study, we observed a distinct dietary shift of newly settled and juvenile coral trout (Plectropomus maculatus) following severe coral reef habitat degradation after a river flood plume affected the Keppel Islands, Australia. Hard coral cover declined by ~28 % in the 2 yr following the 2010–2011 floods, as… CONTINUE READING
