Chapter 8 Comparative Biogeography of Marine Invaders Across Their Native and Introduced Ranges
Biological invasions continue to exert extensive environmental and economic impacts. Understanding why some introduced species become invasive is critical to their management. Determining the mechanisms underpinning ...
Chapter 5 Priority Species to Support the Functional Integrity of Coral Reefs
Ecosystem-based management on coral reefs has historically focused on biodiversity conservation through the establishment of marine reserves, but it is increasingly recognised that a subset of species can be key to the ...
Chapter 4 The Oceanography and Marine Ecology of Ningaloo, A World Heritage Area
The Ningaloo coast of north-western Australia (eastern Indian Ocean) hosts one of the world’s longest and most extensive fringing coral reef systems, along with globally-significant abundances of large marine fauna such ...
Chapter 7 Review: Effects of Microplastic on Zooplankton Survival and Sublethal Responses
Microplastics (MPs) are a prolific contaminant in aquatic ecosystems across the globe. Zooplankton (including holoplankton and meroplankton) play vital ecological roles in marine and freshwater ecosystems and have been ...
Chapter 3 Ecosystem Services and Disservices of Mangrove Forests and Salt Marshes
Coastal wetlands such as mangrove forests and saltmarshes provide a range of important benefits to people, broadly defined as ecosystem services. These include provisioning services such as fuelwood and food, regulating ...
Chapter 2 Towards an Optimal Design for Ecosystem-Level Ocean Observatories
Four operational factors, together with high development cost, currently limit the use of ocean observatories in ecological and fisheries applications: 1) limited spatial coverage; 2) limited integration of multiple types ...
