... and topographic complexity. The loss of corals, and corresponding changes in habitat quality, also has a significant effect on coral reef fishes. Coral loss has the greatest and most immediate effect on fishes that depend on live corals for food or shelter. Many coral-reef fishes that do not depend directly...

.... There was no difference in species richness or diversity of small mammals between grazed/burnt and ungrazed sites, but species composition did differ. The fawn-footed melomys Melomys cervinipes was found only at ungrazed sites, all of which were characterised by a dense, complex shrub understorey. In contrast, the New...
