This is the first report of C. striatus in captivity and this contribution may provide subsidies for a future technologi­cal package.

Spawning, Embryology, and Larval Development of the Milletseed Butterflyfish Chaetodon miliaris in the Laboratory

Thirty-five mature Milletseed Butterflyfish were imported from The Rainbow Reef exhibit at Aulani, a Disney Resort and Spa in Ko Olina, Hawaii, for evaluation and Spawning behavior was documented through personal and video observation five times.

Habitat determinants of Chaetodon butterflyfish and fishery-targeted coral reef fish assemblages in the central Philippines

This thesis aims to determine the habitat characteristics that drive the abundance, species richness, growth rates, and assemblage structure of coral reef fishes in order to inform placement of NTMRs, and to identify potential environmental stressors that may require more complex management strategies.

Pelagic larval duration and settlement size of a reef fish are spatially consistent, but post-settlement growth varies at the reef scale

It is indicated that larval characteristics are consistent at the spatial scale at which populations are likely well connected, but that site-level biological differences develop post-settlement, most likely as a result of key differences in quality of recruitment habitat.

Pair-­formation in coral reef fishes: an ecological perspective

It appears that the basis of pair- formation in reef fishes is complex and may involve a range of ecological factors related to food procurement and predation risk.

Susceptibility of butterflyfish to habitat disturbance: do 'chaets' ever prosper?

[Extract] Disturbance is an integral component of ecology, responsible for re-setting successional clocks and preventing the dominance of climax communities (Grime, 1973; Connell, 1978). However,

Pair Swimming and Mutual Partner Guarding in Monogamous Butterflyfish (Pisces, Chaetodontidae): a Joint Advertisement for Territory

The ecology and social systems of Red Sea butterflyfish were studied along the Sinai coast. Distribution, population density and sociography indicate a preponderance of monogamy in all species,

Mating Systems of Chaetodontid and Pomacanthid Fishes at St. Croix

Differences in mating systems between species are related to differences in resource abundance and distribution, foraging patterns, and type of sex determination, and sexual dimorphism in size.
