Wave energy and swimming performance shape coral reef fish assemblages

Fulton, Christopher; Bellwood, David; Wainwright, P.C.

Description

Physical factors often have an overriding influence on the distribution patterns of organisms, and can ultimately shape the long-term structure of communities. Although distribution patterns in sessile marine organisms have frequently been attributed to functional characteristics interacting with wave-induced water motion, similar evidence for mobile organisms is lacking. Links between fin morphology and swimming performance were examined in three diverse coral reef fish families from two major...[Show more]
