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 http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:22350 Thu 22 Mar 2018 11:22:41 AEST ]]> Identifying restoration hotspots that deliver multiple ecological benefits http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:29955 Thu 21 Nov 2019 13:08:37 AEST ]]> Seascape context and predators override water quality effects on inshore coral reef fish communities http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:19369 Thu 15 Sep 2016 10:06:47 AEST ]]> Spatial Restoration Ecology: Placing Restoration in a Landscape Context http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:27726 Thu 13 Dec 2018 10:05:57 AEST ]]> Landscape transformation alters functional diversity in coastal seascapes http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:29578 Thu 12 Dec 2019 13:15:06 AEST ]]> Landscape transformation alters functional diversity in coastal seascapes http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:30095 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 http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:28243 Mon 05 Aug 2019 15:33:40 AEST ]]> Regional drivers of clutch loss reveal important trade-offs for beach-nesting birds http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:20544 Mon 03 Sep 2018 11:26:25 AEST ]]> Not all rotten fish stink: Microbial changes in decaying carcasses increase cytotoxicity and potential risks to animal scavengers http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:29400 Fri 30 Aug 2019 15:51:41 AEST ]]> Regional drivers of clutch loss reveal important trade-offs for beach-nesting birds http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:20904 Fri 28 Apr 2017 10:24:54 AEST ]]> The Early Shorebird Will Catch Fewer Invertebrates on Trampled Sandy Beaches http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:20576 Fri 28 Apr 2017 10:18:09 AEST ]]> Combined effects of urbanization and connectivity on iconic coastal fishes http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:20950 Fri 21 Apr 2017 09:54:12 AEST ]]> Seagrass meadows shape fish assemblages across estuarine seascapes http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:25635 Fri 20 Apr 2018 11:30:53 AEST ]]> Effects of seascape connectivity on reserve performance along exposed coastlines http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:27575 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 http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:29127 Fri 12 Jul 2019 08:49:17 AEST ]]> Urbanisation supplements ecosystem functioning in disturbed estuaries http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:25829 Fri 12 Apr 2019 14:44:02 AEST ]]> Algal subsidies enhance invertebrate prey for threatened shorebirds: A novel conservation tool on ocean beaches? http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:22352 Fri 12 Apr 2019 14:12:07 AEST ]]> Connectivity in Coastal Seascapes http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:24472 Fri 09 Aug 2019 15:06:39 AEST ]]> Meta-analysis indicates habitat-specific alterations to primary producer and herbivore communities in marine protected areas http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:17461 Fri 08 Apr 2016 09:09:43 AEST ]]>
