While relationships between adult fish density and structural habitat features are well established, relatively little is known about the habitat associations of juvenile reef fish. In a reserve system in Palau, we quantified microhabitat association with juvenile reef fish community structure, and determined the influence of foraging space, predator size and confamilial attraction on juvenile and adult pomacentrid abundance. Habitat structure and juvenile reef fish communities differed… CONTINUE READING
