Abstract

Katie Sievers studied how mangroves, macroalgal beds, and seagrass meadows affect coral reef fishes in the Philippines. Her thesis revealed that many more fish are using non-reef habitats than previously identified. These results are especially important for fisheries management because protection of non-reef habitats is often overlooked.
