Abstract

Audrey Schlaff studied the spatial ecology of blacktip reef sharks on an inshore reef. She found that movement patterns and space use differed between sexes and size classes, and mangrove habitats were important during early life-stages. Results from her study help to inform management and conservation efforts within the GBR.
