Interdecadal variability in ecosystem health of Changjiang (Yangtze) River estuary using estuarine biotic integrity index
Ichthyoplankton samples were collected from Changjiang (Yangtze) River estuary in May 2016. Species composition was studied by DNA barcoding and morphological identification. To make better use of


True Value of Estuarine and Coastal Nurseries for Fish: Incorporating Complexity and Dynamics
Coastal ecosystems, such as estuaries, salt marshes, mangroves and seagrass meadows, comprise some of the world’s most productive and ecologically significant ecosystems. Currently, the predominant
Contrasting effects of mangroves and armoured shorelines on fish assemblages in tropical estuarine seascapes
Coastal seascapes are composed of a diversity of habitats that are linked in space and time by the movement of organisms. The context and configuration of coastal ecosystems shapes many important
Effects of shoreline armouring and overwater structures on coastal and estuarine fish: opportunities for habitat improvement
Ability to assess and rehabilitate nearshore fish habitats along modified shorelines will be enhanced by: focusing research attention on metrics that directly indicate fish habitat quality; implementing and evaluating shoreline features that repair compromised habitat functions within human-use constraints; and embracing the socio-ecological nature of habitat improvements.
Human Influence at the Coast: Upland and Shoreline Stressors Affect Coastal Macrofauna and Are Mediated by Salinity
Anthropogenic stressors can affect subtidal communities within the land-water interface. Increasing anthropogenic activities, including upland and shoreline development, threaten ecologically
The Role of Living Shorelines as Estuarine Habitat Conservation Strategies
ABSTRACT Globally, shoreline protection approaches are evolving towards the incorporation of natural and nature-based features (living shorelines henceforth) as a preferred alternative to shoreline
Artificial waterway design affects fish assemblages in urban estuaries
Salinity was lower in lakes because of the tidal restrictions, and while this was only weakly correlated with differences in fish assemblages, it had the most explanatory power of any environmental variable.
Nekton use of vegetated marsh habitats at different stages of tidal inundation
Fishes and crustaceans are potentially important vectors for the transfer of production from intertidal marshes to subtidal estuarine environments. Because marsh habitats are accessible to nekton
