Since the early 1920s, ecologists studying a variety of taxa have observed a positive rela- tionship between the number of species and area sampled. The purpose of this study was to examine species-area relationships in coral reef fish assemblages in a tropical marine ecosystem and to deter- mine what factors influence this relationship on isolated patch and continuous reefs. A positive rela- tionship between the log (species richness of reef fish) and log (coral reef area) was observed, where… CONTINUE READING
