Microhabitat selectivity and condition of juvenile ?shes in coral reef seascapes

Indicative Funding
$53,914 over 2 years
Summary
This research focuses on the importance of multiple habitat types in a tropical seascape to understand how ?shes may be using alternative habitats in the Great Barrier Reef (GBR). This project aims to describe how juvenile ?shes utilize habitats at small spatial scales to understand the variability in habitat use across a changing reef environment. Speci?cally, this work aims to disentangle the cascading e?ects habitat use has on the condition, growth, and reproductive potential of juvenile ?shes. These results will be compared and contrasted between reefs to varying condition (i.e. healthy coral reef, and degraded reef) to understand how species may cope with a changing reef environment.

ARC Centre of Excellence for Integrated Coral Reef Studies

Indicative Funding
$28,000,000 over 7 years
Summary
The overarching aim of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Integrated Coral Reef Studies is to provide the scientific knowledge necessary for sustaining ecosystem goods and services of the world's coral reefs, which support the livelihoods and food security of millions of people in the tropics. The Centre will enhance Australia's global leadership in coral reef science through three ambitious research programs addressing the future of coral reefs and their ability to adapt to change. A key outcome of the research will be providing tangible benefits to all Australians by bui8lding bridges between the natural and social sciences, strengthening capacity, and informing and supporting transformative changes in coral reef governance and management.
