Microhabitat selectivity shapes the seascapeecology of a carnivorous macroalgae-associatedtropical fish

Wenger, Lucy; van Lier, Joshua; Fulton, Christopher J

Description

Habitat quantity and quality can be key drivers for the distribution and abundance of animals in heterogeneous landscapes. Macroalgal meadows are often a prominent component of tropical marine ecosystems, yet we have little understanding of how dynamic shifts in this habitat type may affect patterns of fish biodiversity. We examined whether a tropical carnivorous wrasse, Xenojulis margaritaceus, was a macroalgal specialist that responded to changes in canopy habitat structure across space and...[Show more]
