Article
Coral reefs have experienced extensive degradation across the world over the last 50 years as a result of a variety of stressors operating at a range of spatial and temporal scales. In order to assess whether declines are continuing, or if reefs are recovering, detailed baseline information is required from across wide spatial scales. Unfortunately...
Technical Report
This report presents the environmental monitoring results for the Ngamahau Bay (NGA) salmon farm located in Tory Channel (consent number U140296). The NGA farm was established in November 2015, making this the fourth annual monitoring report for this site. Data presented include an assessment of depositional effects on soft-sediment habitats, effec...
Technical Report
This report presents the environmental monitoring results for the Kopaua (KOP) salmon farm located in Pelorus Sound (consent number U160675). The KOP farm was established in May 2016, making this the third annual monitoring report for this site. Data presented include an assessment of depositional effects on soft-sediment habitats and effects on th...
Technical Report
This report presents the environmental monitoring results for the Waitata Reach (WTA) salmon farm located in Pelorus Sound (consent number U140294). The WTA farm was established in December 2015, making this the third annual monitoring report for this site. Data presented include an assessment of depositional effects on soft-sediment habitats and e...
Article
Full-text available
Anthropogenic stressors are impacting ecological systems across the world. Of particular concern are the recent rapid changes occurring in coral reef systems. With ongoing degradation from both local and global stressors, future reefs are likely to function differently to current coral-dominated ecosystems. Determining key attributes of future reef...
Article
Full-text available
Ocean warming (OW) and ocean acidification (OA) are threatening coral reef ecosystems, with a bleak future forecast for reef-building corals, which are already experiencing global declines in abundance. In contrast, many coral reef sponge species are able to tolerate climate change conditions projected for 2100. To increase our understanding of the...
Chapter
Full-text available
There are large-scale processes that are impacting marine communities across the world at a range of temporal scales. In this chapter, we consider the potential impacts of short-term, large-scale, climate processes on sponges with a major focus on temperature variation. We examined available case studies from across the world to assess the physiolo...
Article
Monitoring has become a critical component of managing marine environments world-wide in the face of local and global anthropogenic impacts. Typically the focus of most monitoring programmes has been to quantify temporal and spatial variation in the abundance of organisms, along with the diversity and composition of biological communities to assess...
Article
Full-text available
As atmospheric CO2 concentrations rise, associated ocean warming (OW) and ocean acidification (OA) are predicted to cause declines in reef-building corals globally, shifting reefs from coral-dominated systems to those dominated by less sensitive species. Sponges are important structural and functional components of coral reef ecosystems, but despit...
Data
Details of the search criteria (Appendix S1), a list of all the papers identified during our searches for marine (Appendix S1) and freshwater (Appendix S3) sponges, and a list of endangered sponges from Northern Ireland (Appendix S4)
Article
Sponges are important for maintaining ecosystem function and integrity of marine and freshwater benthic communities worldwide. Despite this, there has been no assessment of their current global conservation status. We assessed their status, accounting for the distribution of research effort; patterns of temporal variation in sponge populations and...
Article
Full-text available
Augmentative biocontrol, defined as the use of indigenous natural enemies to control pest populations, has not been explored extensively in marine systems. This study tested the potential of the anemone Anthothoe albocincta as a biocontrol agent for biofouling on submerged artificial structures. Biofouling biomass was negatively related to anemone...
