Removal of seagrass canopy : effects Prey on small fish and their

  title={Removal of seagrass canopy : effects Prey on small fish and their},
  author={Rod M. Connolly},
In an experiment in a southern Australian estuary, patches of seagrass canopy were removed to test the importance of the canopy to fish in areas where all other factors were known to be consistent with seagrass presence. The total number of fish was slightly lower in patches cleared of seagrass than in patches of undisturbed seagrass, but was not as low as in unvegetated patches. The benthic habitat was expected to be especially important to non-pelagic species, yet their numbers, and those of… CONTINUE READING
