Abstract Habitat complexity plays a major role in determining the distribution and structure of fish assemblages in the aquatic environment. These locations are critical for ecosystem function and

A new video survey method of microtopographic laser scanning (MiLS) to measure small-scale seafloor bottom roughness
A novel video survey method measures small-scale seafloor bottom roughness in fragile and deep-sea habitats called microtopographic laser scanning (MiLS). Using a controlled submersible platform, an

Effects of habitat structure on tropical fish assemblages
TLDR
The loss of live coral reduces structural complexity while facilitating algal insecurities on coral reefs, which results in decline in structural complexity and reef integrity.
Habitat complexity and coral reef fish diversity and abundance on Red Sea fringing reefs
TLDR
Although the depth of peak specles richness varied between families, overall there was a trend of increasing species richness with increasing depth, and biological diversity of the substratum (H') was highly correlated with overall fish species nchness.
Ontogenetic shifts in perceptions of safety along structural complexity gradients in a territorial damselfish
TLDR
It was found that adult damselfish tolerated closer approach in more complex habitats as measured by percent coral cover, but not rugosity, whereas juvenile fish always allowed closer approach than adult fish regardless of complexity, which may result from juvenile fish taking bigger risks to maximize growth.
Structural Complexity and Benthic Cover Explain Reef-Scale Variability of Fish Assemblages in Los Roques National Park, Venezuela
TLDR
It is concluded that variation in fish assemblages among sites can be explained by features of the benthic habitat, but more importantly the absence of specific attributes may impact fish trophic groups differently.

Bird Species Diversity and Habitat Diversity in Australia and North America
TLDR
Censuses of breeding bird populations in Australia support the conclusion that habitat diversity as measured by foliage profile is a good predictor of bird species diversity and indicate that the avifaunas of forest and scrub habitats in the temperate zones of Australia and North America have reached equilibrium and are probably saturated.

TLDR
The absence of a longitudinal gradient of species number and diversity in the uniform Type II habitats over 160⚬ of longitude, despite reports of larger total numbers of species near the "faunistic center" of the Indo- West Pacific region, supports the conclusion that habitat complexity is an important determinant of species diversity.
Latitudinal Gradients in Species Diversity: A Review of Concepts
The six major hypotheses of the control of species diversity are restated, examined, and some possible tests suggested. Although several of these mechanisms could be operating simultaneously, it is

TLDR
The purpose of this report is to extend the conclusions of previous accounts to more complicated habitats and to produce a general synthesis of the partitioning of the environment among breeding bird species.

The Commonness, And Rarity, of Species
The purpose of this paper is to deduce, from a number of examples and from theoretical considerations, some plausible general law as to how abundance or commonness is distributed among species.
