Implications of habitat patch dynamics for reef fish diversity

Reef fish diversity in patch habitats


Fish often occupy patchy habitats that can vary in size, shape, complexity, proximity and stability over time. In this PhD project, Joshua van Lier is exploring how the structure of marine patch habitats over space and time influences patterns of reef fish diversity in both tropical and temperate ecosystems. Josh is working with his team of supervisors from the ANU (Chris Fulton), WA Department of Parks & Wildlife (Shaun Wilson) and the Australian Institute of Marine Science (Martial Depczynski).
