Final Report Tue 07 Apr 2020 11:10:49 AEST ]]> Low redundancy and complementarity shape ecosystem functioning in a low‐diversity ecosystem 0.1 km2). 5.Our findings demonstrate that an ecological function can be maintained across estuarine seascapes despite both limited redundancy (i.e. dominated by one species) and complementarity (i.e. there is no spatial context where the function is delivered significantly when yellowfin bream are not present) in the functional traits of animal assemblages. The continued functioning of estuaries, and other low‐diversity ecosystems, might therefore not be tightly linked to biodiversity, and we suggest that the preservation of functionally dominant species that maintain functions in these systems could help to improve conservation outcomes for coastal seascapes.]]> Tue 07 Apr 2020 11:03:38 AEST ]]> Seascape context modifies how fish respond to restored oyster reef structures Tue 07 Apr 2020 11:03:38 AEST ]]> Optimising Land-Sea Management for Inshore Coral Reefs 58% of scenarios with positive outcomes, and >98% of the most effective (5th percentile) scenarios. Heightened fishing restrictions, restoring habitats, and reducing nutrient discharges from wastewater treatment plants have additional, albeit smaller effects. There was no evidence that combining individual management actions would consistently produce sizeable synergistic until after maximum investment on both marine reserves (i.e. increasing reserve extent from 31 to 62% of reefs) and sediments (i.e. rehabilitating 6350 km of waterways within catchments to reduce sediment loads by 50%) were implemented. The method presented here provides a useful tool to prioritize environmental actions in situations where multiple competing management interventions exist for coral reefs and in other systems subjected to multiple stressor from the land and the sea.]]> Thu 27 Apr 2017 13:10:27 AEST ]]> Enhancing the performance of marine reserves in estuaries: Just add water Thu 22 Mar 2018 11:22:41 AEST ]]> Landscape context and nutrients modify the effects of coastal urbanisation Thu 19 Mar 2020 12:58:19 AEST ]]> Fishes of Moreton Bay: Ecology, human impacts, and conservation Thu 19 Dec 2019 11:15:49 AEST ]]> Seascape context and predators override water quality effects on inshore coral reef fish communities Thu 15 Sep 2016 10:06:47 AEST ]]> Spatial Restoration Ecology: Placing Restoration in a Landscape Context Thu 13 Dec 2018 10:05:57 AEST ]]> Landscape transformation alters functional diversity in coastal seascapes Thu 12 Dec 2019 13:15:06 AEST ]]> Landscape transformation alters functional diversity in coastal seascapes Thu 12 Dec 2019 13:14:50 AEST ]]> Better red than dead?

During winter (<20.2 °C), G. typus centre of activity increased significantly (p <  0.001), and greater than 50% of the detections occurred in reserves in winter. Conversely, during the rest of the year (water temperature > 20.2 °C), the habitat use of individuals is contained in smaller centres of activity compared with winter, however, protection effects varied. Our results show that seascape context and marine reserves combine to provide the optimal areas for G. typus habitat selection. Limited food resources likely caused larger centres of activity during winter. Identifying priority habitats for vulnerable species is critical for ongoing protection and maintaining effective conservation initiatives. We have shown here that incorporating spatial features into the design of marine reserves can improve conservation outcomes for mobile benthic predators such as G. typus and other species that use such seascapes.]]> Mon 09 Apr 2018 15:56:39 AEST ]]> Contrasting effects of mangroves and armoured shorelines on fish assemblages in tropical estuarine seascapes Mon 05 Aug 2019 15:33:40 AEST ]]> The Early Shorebird Will Catch Fewer Invertebrates on Trampled Sandy Beaches Fri 28 Apr 2017 10:18:09 AEST ]]> Combined effects of urbanization and connectivity on iconic coastal fishes Fri 21 Apr 2017 09:54:12 AEST ]]> Seagrass meadows shape fish assemblages across estuarine seascapes Fri 20 Apr 2018 11:30:53 AEST ]]> Effects of seascape connectivity on reserve performance along exposed coastlines 1.5 km of coastline); ii) were located close (<100 m) to rocky headlands; and iii) included pocket beaches in a heterogeneous seascape. Conservation outcomes for exposed coastlines might, therefore, be enhanced by prioritizing sufficiently large areas of seascapes, with strong linkages to abutting complementary habitats. Our findings have broader implications for coastal conservation planning, which is limited by the absence of empirical data to describe how the ecological features of high‐energy shorelines influence conservation outcomes, and we suggest that seascape connectivity might have similar ecological effects on reserve performance on both sheltered and exposed coastlines.]]> Fri 18 Oct 2019 13:45:44 AEST ]]> Landscape context modifies the rate and distribution of predation around habitat restoration sites Fri 12 Jul 2019 08:49:17 AEST ]]> Urbanisation supplements ecosystem functioning in disturbed estuaries Fri 12 Apr 2019 14:44:02 AEST ]]> Connectivity in Coastal Seascapes Fri 09 Aug 2019 15:06:39 AEST ]]> Meta-analysis indicates habitat-specific alterations to primary producer and herbivore communities in marine protected areas Fri 08 Apr 2016 09:09:43 AEST ]]> Algal subsidies enhance invertebrate prey for threatened shorebirds: A novel conservation tool on ocean beaches?
