Sargassum epifaunal communities vary with canopy size, predator biomass and seascape setting within a fringing coral reef ecosystem

Chen, Yi-Yang; Cooper, Paul; Fulton, Christopher J


Tropical seascapes are comprised of a range of patch habitat types, yet we have only a partial understanding of how local patch condition and seascape position may influence patterns of marine biodiversity, particularly for invertebrate taxa. We investigated how the epifaunal abundance and biomass of tropical Sargassum varied with canopy size (volume, total length, dry weight), local patch conditions (macroalgal composition, canopy structure, invertivorous fish biomass) and seascape setting...[Show more]
