Interactive effects of ontogeny, food ration and temperature on elemental incorporation in otoliths of a coral reef fish

Walther, Benjamin; Kingsford, Michael; O’Callaghan, Mark D.; McCulloch, Malcolm


The potential for environmental and physiological modification of elemental incorporation in otoliths is significant and must be validated before otoliths can be used reliably to estimate water parameters over the life history of a fish. We experimentally manipulated temperature and diet quantity for juvenile, sub-adult, and adult Acanthochromis polyacanthus, a tropical damselfish of the SW Pacific. Significant interactive effects between life history stage, temperature and food quantity were...[Show more]
