SynopsisThe giant humphead wrasse (Cheilinus undulatus), an inhabitant of coral reefs, is widely distributed in the tropical Indo-Pacific region. Stomach and intestinal contents of 72 specimens from the Pacific and the Red Sea revealed that this fish feeds primarily on mollusks, fishes, echinoids, and crustaceans.

The Humphead Wrasse, Cheilinus Undulatus: Synopsis of a Threatened and Poorly Known Giant Coral Reef Fish
TLDR
The humphead wrasse is examined for its conservation and management status and key data gaps in species that are little known, vulnerable, difficult and expensive to study and may require urgent management or conservation action. Expand
Juvenile silver grunter Mesopristes argenteus shift benthic objects to access food.
Juvenile silver grunter Mesopristes argenteus were observed, photographed and filmed, manoeuvring objects with their snout and nape to expose benthic prey in two short steep coastal streams,Expand
Benefits of heterospecific foraging by the Caribbean wrasse, Halichoeres garnoti (Pisces: Labridae)
TLDR
Terminal-phase yellowhead wrasses, Halichoeres garnoti, foraged alone or in association with foraging goatfish, Pseudupeneus maculatus and Mulloides martinicus, and made significantly more strikes on sand substrata than did solitary wrasses. Expand

Seagrass beds and mangroves as potential nurseries for the threatened Indo-Pacific humphead wrasse, Cheilinus undulatus and Caribbean rainbow parrotfish, Scarus guacamaia
TLDR
The importance of mangroves for the occurrence of adults of this species on the scale of an entire island is investigated using a single sampling method on four islands in the western Indian Ocean for Cheilinus undulatus and on one island in the southern Caribbean Sea for Scarus guacamaia. Expand

Known Predators of Crown-of-Thorns Starfish (Acanthaster spp.) and Their Role in Mitigating, If Not Preventing, Population Outbreaks
TLDR
Reducing anthropogenic stressors that reduce the abundance and/or diversity of potential predatory species represents a “no regrets” management strategy, but will need to be used in conjunction with other management strategies to prevent, or reduce the occurrence, of CoTS outbreaks. Expand

Fische als Feinde tropischer Seeigel
TLDR
Morphological and ethological preadaptation of the fish to alter its preference for other food is essential before it can develop differentiated capture techniques and the ecological significance of the behaviour of fish in the coral reef ecosystem and the alternating influences in the predator-prey-relationship are discussed.
