Abstract Pterapogon kauderni, the Banggai Cardinalfish, demonstrates a marked ontogenetic shift in habitat and microhabitat use with new recruits differing significantly from older juveniles and adults. New recruits are commonly found in sea grass beds and associated with anemones, whereas older individuals and adults prefer coral reef habitat, and live coral or sea urchins as living substrates. This habitat segregation occurs within a small area, at the same depth, and it is related neither to… Expand
Ontogenetic shifts in microhabitat preference of the temperate reef fish Forsterygion lapillum: implications for population limitation
TLDR
Results suggest that age-specific behavioural preferences may mediate ontogenetic shifts in microhabitat use and limit recruitment in local populations. Expand
Understanding patterns of habitat use in reef fish : Implications of ontogenetic shifts in habitat-use for population demography
Quantitative surveys of habitat associations of New Zealand's common triplefin fish, Forsterygion lapillum, show that a small-scale ontogenetic shift in habitat use occurs shortly after settlement.Expand
Habitat use and behavioural ecology of the juveniles of two sympatric damselfishes (Actinopterygii: Pomacentridae) in the south-western Atlantic Ocean.
TLDR
Despite similarities in territory area and agonistic encounter rates, the identity and proportion of intruders involved in agonistic interactions differed significantly between species, suggesting strong asymmetric competition between sympatric territorial damselfishes. Expand
The ontogeny of habitat associations in the tropical tiger tail seahorse Hippocampus comes Cantor, 1850
TLDR
It is suggested that H. comes experiences fitness trade-offs that vary with size; juveniles may associate with habitat that reduces predation, while larger individuals may use distinct microhabitat in reef zones to optimize reproductive success. Expand
The unfortunate journey of Pterapogon kauderni: A remarkable apogonid endangered by the international ornamental fish trade, and its case in CITES
Pterapogon kauderni (Koumans 1933) is a popular aquarium fish that is endemic to the Banggai Archipelago in eastern Indonesia. It is generally found in calm zones on the leeward side of largerExpand
Fine scale dispersal in Banggai Cardinalfish, Pterapogon kauderni, a coral reef species lacking a pelagic larval phase.
TLDR
The Banggai Cardinalfish, Pterapogon kauderni, a mouthbrooding species that lacks a pelagic larval phase is focused on, and data show consistency between small and large-scale dispersal. Expand
The Banggai cardinalfish: an overview of local research (2007-2009)
TLDR
The presence of juvenile urchins in P. kauderni stomach contents indicates that the relationship may be more complex than was previously thought and an ontogenetic shift in diet is indicated. Expand
Adult Male Density Influences Juvenile Microhabitat Use in a Territorial Lizard
TLDR
The complexity of juvenile perching behavior is highlighted and the role of intraspecific interactions in shaping habitat use by juvenile animals is demonstrated, suggesting that age-class competition contributes to the observed ontogenetic differences in habitat choice. Expand
Age- and sex-specific variations in microhabitat and macrohabitat use in a territorial lizard
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the complex variation in habitat use by A. sagrei is explained by interactions among age, sex, size, season, and habitat scale, which provides new insights into the factors that shape the way organisms distribute themselves across landscapes. Expand

Ontogenetic shifts in habitat preferences in the three-spot damselfish, Stegasees planifions (Cuvier), in Roatan Island, Honduras
TLDR
Results suggest that ontogenetic shifts in habitat preferences can influence the spatial distribution of adults and juveniles of Stegastes planifrons in a section of the Honduras Barrier Reef, and suggest that three-spot damselfish actively defend their territories against conspecifics would serve as a mechanism to reduce competition for space. Expand
Ontogeny of diet shifts by a microcarnivorous fish, Cheilodactylus spectabilis : relationship between feeding mechanics, microhabitat selection and growth
TLDR
Detailed observations on feeding mechanics suggested that size-related changes in suctorial force allowed the exploitation of a broader range of microhabitats with increasing fish size. Expand
Recruitment in Nassau grouper Epinephelus striatus:post-settlement abundance, microhabitat features, and ontogenetic habitat shifts
TLDR
Habitat-specific abundance patterns suggest that juvenile Nassau grouper exhibit an ontogenetic habitat shift from inacroalgal-Podtes spp. Expand
Habitat selection by recruits establishes local patterns of adult distribution in two species of damselfishes: Stegastes dorsopunicans and S. planifrons
TLDR
Monitoring recruitment every other day in reciprocal removal experiments and artificial reefs indicates that the observed pattern of local adult distribution is a product of habitat selection for both species and indicates that substrate type and depth may be important cues. Expand
Cannibalism as the cause of an ontogenetic shift in habitat use by fry of the threespine stickleback
TLDR
It is concluded that small fry occupy vegetation as a refuge from cannibalism once fry have reached the size-threshold at which they are no longer vulnerable to adult conspecifics they are able to forage farther from vegetation thereby reducing risk of predation by insects in vegetation and possibly acquiring more abundant food resources.

Habitat and Microhabitat of Mediterranean Clingfishes (Teleostei: Gobiesociformes: Gobiesocidae)
TLDR
It is shown that Lepadogaster lepadogaster is closely adapted to large pebbles and boulder fields of rounded stones with a smooth surface and, in addition to inhabiting boulder fields also, occurs close to seagrass meadows, in small cavities and in association with sea urchins. Expand

Pterapogon kauderni is the first apogonid in which direct development is described, and the embryo and juvenile development is presented. Expand
Post-settlement diet shift of Chlorurus sordidus and Scarus schlegeli (Pisces: Scaridae)
TLDR
Dietary changes of post-settled C. sordidus and S. schlegeli were directly related to morphological changes in the alimentary tract rather than the differences of habitat utilization. Expand

Age structure, growth rates, movement patterns and feeding in an estuarine population of the cardinalfish Apogon rueppellii
TLDR
Measurements of fecundity and the number of oral-brooded eggs demonstrated that the majority of the eggs released by the female are collected and incubated by the males, and the presence of greater amounts of copepods in the diet during the day and of amphipods at night probably reflects the diel activity patterns of the prey.
