Pterapogon kauderni does not have secondary sexual dimorphism, and has an equal sex ratio (50.8% males : 49.2% females). Females first mature at a length of about 34 mm. Data from both laboratory-bred and wild-collected eggs and embryos are not consistent with the presence of differential reproductive allocation in this species. Analysis from clutches brooded by wild-collected males shows a significant intra-clutch and among-clutch variation in egg size. Mean individual egg size (diameter… Expand

The Reproductive Biology and Embryology of Quinca mirifica, an Apogonid with Direct Development That Produces Non-Functional Oocytes
Quinca mirifica Mees, 1966 is a relatively large cardinalfish endemic to western Australia that displays a combination of unusual traits for an apogonid, including solitary behavior, conspicuousExpand
Lunar and seasonal patterns in fecundity of an indeterminate, multiple-spawning surgeonfish, the yellow tang Zebrasoma flavescens.
TLDR
The ability to estimate annual fecundity for more multiple-spawning species will facilitate examination of the effects of fishing on the reproductive characteristics of these populations and permit examination of life-history evolution across a broader suite of fishes. Expand
Breeding and rearing of the two striped cardinalfish, Apogon quadrifasciatus (Cuvier, 1828) in captive condition.
TLDR
Captive breeding and rearing of A. quadrifasciatus can help in restoring the wild populations impacted by local trawling activities as well as to supply this species to the ornamental fish trade, in a sustainable way. Expand
Planktonic Larval Duration, age and growth of Ostorhinchus doederleini (Pisces: Apogonidae) on the southern Great Barrier Reef, Australia
TLDR
Key demographic parameters for the entire life history of Ostorhinchusdoederleini, a small and abundant apogonid on the Great Barrier Reef and throughout the western Pacific Ocean are presented. Expand
Apparent semi-lunar spawning rhythmicity in a brackish cardinalfish
TLDR
Results suggest that with the 1 month ovarian development process, A. amboinensis exhibits a semi-lunar spawning pattern with peaks around the first and last quarter moon. Expand
Reproductive characteristics of the orbiculate cardinalfish Sphaeramia orbicularis in the Chuuk Lagoon, Micronesia
TLDR
Histological observation of S. orbicularis ovaries and testes revealed that the fish exhibits multiple spawner characteristics, including coexistence of primary yolk stages, migratory nucleus or mature stages, and asynchronism of the spermatogenesis process. Expand
The Reproductive Biology of Pempheris schwenkii (Pempheridae) on Okinawa Island, Southwestern Japan
TLDR
Pempheris schwenkii appeared to spawn at night based on diurnal changes in the frequency of females exhibiting hydrated ovaries and postovulatory follicles, which seems to reduce the risk of predation of adults and eggs, which may be an adaptive characteristic of nocturnal fishes. 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
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
Captive Breeding and Hatchery Production of Mouth Brooding Jewel Cardinal Perch, Pterapogon Kauderni, (Koumanns, 1933) Using Brackish Water: The Role of Live Prey and Green Water Enrichment in Juvenile Production
TLDR
The results illustrated that the photoperiod and different diets given to the juveniles influences the physiological performance of the juveniles and substantiated that photoperperiod and different diet influences the juvenile growth, survival and feeding. Expand

Pterapogon kauderni is the first apogonid in which direct development is described, and the embryo and juvenile development is presented. Expand

TLDR
The Banggai cardinalfish has an unusually large egg, direct development, no pelagic larvae, and the incubation of young in the male’s oral cavity after hatching, and is capable of diving in among the tentacles without being stung if threatened. Expand

A three week expedition to the Banggai Islands archipelago in Indonesia was completed in an attempt to determine the geographical distribution of the Banggai cardinalfish, Pterapogon kauderni, asExpand
Lunar Reproductive Cycles of Benthic‐Brooding Reef Fishes: Reflections of Larval Biology or Adult Biology?
TLDR
If hatchling biology is of general importance to paternal brooders, there must be considerably more interspecific variability in hatchling ecology than is generally assumed, and adult-biology hypotheses represent generally underemphasized alternatives that have at least as much explanatory potential as larval- biology hypotheses. Expand
Reproductive strategies of coastal marine fishes in the tropics
TLDR
It is concluded that temperate zone models of reproductive strategy are inapplicable to many fishes of the coastal tropics and offshore larval dispersal does not seem to be an adaptation for dispersal of the species, but rather an evolutionary response to intense predation pressure in the adult habitats.

Nocturnal hatching timing of mouthbrooding male cardinalfish Apogon niger
Abstract We observed hatching behavior by mouthbrooding males of the cardinalfish, Apogon niger. Mouthbrooding males showed no feeding activities at night, in spite of their nocturnal feeding habit.Expand

TLDR
Experiments show that females in this species adjust their offspring weight and, thus, presumably offspring quality according to the size of their mate, and suggest a female preference for larger males. Expand
Patterns of parental investment, dispersal and size among coral-reef fishes
SynopsisCoral-reef fishes have been selected to produce propagules for dispersal because they live in a patchy environment, and the adults cannot migrate between patches. For large species (>100 mmExpand
Coexistence of coral reef fishes — a lottery for living space
  • P. Sale
  • Biology

  • 2004
TLDR
It is argued that reef fishes are preadapted for forming inter-specific lotteries for living space if several species with similar requirements occur together, and may explain the typically high within-site diversity found in them. Expand
The adaptive significance of larval dispersal in coral reef fishes
TLDR
It is suggested that species committed to pelagic offspring will be under selection to disperse siblings to spread the risk of failure among members of a cohort. Expand
