Geographical and Temporal Changes of Reef Fish (Labridae) Assemblages: A Case Study of South Western Australia
MetadataShow full item record
Changes in Labridae assemblages and distributions along South Western Australia’s (SWA) coastline were investigated over 10 years of climate change. This study found district assemblage composition changes, with an inundation of warm water associated species and functional groups and a corresponding decline in large bodied cool water species. This thesis identified unprecedented marine assemblage changes in SWA and forms a platform for future research to further manage the unique SWA ecosystem.

Oil mallee plantings and arthropod biodiversity in the Western Australian wheatbelt : effects of host species, nutrition, and leaf chemistryLyons, Anita Marie (2008)Since European settlement, around 93% of the Western Australian wheatbelt has been cleared for agriculture, leading to a range of environmental problems, including erosion, salinity, and loss of biodiversity. Recently, ...
Smale, D.; Kendrick, G.; Waddington, K.; Van Niel, K.; Meeuwig, J.; Harvey, Euan (2010)At regional scales, the distribution of species and the structure of assemblages vary with latitude within many marine and terrestrial systems. The oligotrophic coastal waters of Western Australia (WA) support highly ...
Nestedness patterns reveal impacts of reduced rainfall on seedling establishment in restored jarrah forestStandish, R.; Gove, Aaron; Daws, M.; Renton, M. (2018)Directional climate change can potentially cause a nested pattern of species occurrences as species move or go extinct. That is, species-poor communities may become a nested subset of species-rich communities. There is a ...
