Abundance, diversity, and feeding behavior of coral reef butterflyfishes at Lord Howe Island

Pratchett, Morgan S.; Hoey, Andrew S.; Cvitanovic, Christopher; Hobbs, Jean-Paul A.; Fulton, Christopher J.


Endemic species are assumed to have a high risk of extinction because their restricted geographic range is often associated with low abundance and high ecological specialization. This study examines the abundance of Chaetodon butterflyfishes at Lord Howe Island in the south-west Pacific, and compares interspecific differences in local abundance to the feeding behavior and geographic range of these species. Contrary to expected correlations between abundance and geographic range, the single most...[Show more]
