Noble, Mae; Pratchett, M.S.; Coker, Darren J.; Cvitanovic, Christopher; Fulton, Christopher

Description

Understanding the foraging patterns of reef fishes is crucial for determining patterns of resource use and the sensitivity of species to environmental change. While changes in prey availability and interspecific competition have been linked to patterns of prey selection, body condition, and survival in coral reef fishes, rarely has the influence of abiotic environmental conditions on foraging been considered. We used underwater digital video to explore how prey availability and wave exposure...[Show more]
