Anchialine pond habitats are frequently associated with biota that can differ dramatically from nearby coastal systems. In this study, we investigated lined seahorses Hippocampus erectus by season, size, and sex across a tidal lake on the island of Eleuthera (The Bahamas). In total, 35 benthic transects of 30−60 m2 were established around the lake margin and assessed 4 times between 2014 and 2016. Seahorses were mapped along each transect and photographed for morphological analyses. Mean (±SE… CONTINUE READING
