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.
