The role of local-scale processes in determining large-scale patterns of abundance is a key issue in ecology. To test whether habitat use determines local and large-scale patterns of abundance of obligate coral-dwelling fishes (genus Gobiodon), the author compared habitat availability with the abundance of four species, G. axillaris, G. brochus, G. histrio, and G. quinquestrigatus, among four locations, from the southern Great Barrier Reef to northern Papua New Guinea. Habitat availability… CONTINUE READING
