Coral reef fishes exploit flow refuges in high-flow habitats
Behaviour can offset the limitations of the morphology and physiology of a species to profoundly influence patterns of resource use. In fishes, flow refuging is a behavioural mechanism that may facilitate the occupation of turbulent, high-flow habitats by reducing extreme environmental demands on their swimming capabilities. Using a novel combination of experimental and field techniques, we examined the refuging patterns of coral reef fishes to demonstrate the potential energetic advantages of...[Show more]
