Abstract

Katie Sambrook investigated how seascape structure affects the composition and function of tropical fish communities. She found that many fishes use multiple habitats and that the spatial arrangement of habitats shape ecological patterns and processes. Her findings highlight the need to incorporate seascape ecology into future management and conservation strategies.
