Spatial ecology and ontogeny: incorporating fish size-classes into species distribution models
|dc.contributor.supervisor||Prof. Euan Harvey||en_US|
I use spatial modelling to investigate how relative abundance and body-length can be used to identify niche requirements and habitat partitioning between conspecific fishes. The models identified specific areas associated with juveniles and adults of same or multiple fish species. I investigate the performance of models using data collected from towed and baited video systems. The towed video models detected fine-scale environmental niche associations of fish, which could be missed by commonly used baited systems.
