How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Article
Prioritizing projects to improve cost‐effectiveness has become a common practice in natural resources management, especially in selecting sites for river restoration work. Previous studies for prioritizing road–stream crossing upgrade projects focused on either restoring river connectivity or reducing sedimentation, even though crossings can affect...
Article
Control programs are implemented to mitigate the damage caused by invasive species worldwide. In the highly invaded Great Lakes, the climate is expected to become warmer with more extreme weather and variable precipitation, resulting in shorter iced‐over periods and variable tributary flows as well as changes to pH and river hydrology and hydrogeom...
Article
The removal of barriers, such as dams and culverts, has become a commonly‐used approach in river restoration to re‐establish the connectivity of river flow, sediment, and species movement (Foley et al. 2017a). These removals have resulted in increases in native species richness, diversity, and productivity (Foley et al. 2017a).
Article
Connection between critical habitats is an important consideration in efforts to restore native and socio-economically important fish species or control the spread of invasive species. However, differences in fish life history might influence the effectiveness of restoration and management actions. In addition, the strength of connection among spat...
Article
Web-based decision support tools (DSTs) can be useful to facilitate decision-making processes for managing complex natural resource systems. However, the alignment of DSTs with the objectives in governmental policies or management plans and the influence of limited local data on the outputs of these tools may reduce the use of DSTs by decision make...

1.Pollution from land‐based run‐off threatens coastal ecosystems and the services they provide, detrimentally affecting the livelihoods of millions people on the world's coasts. Planning for linkages among terrestrial, freshwater and marine ecosystems can help managers mitigate the impacts of land‐use change on water quality and coastal ecosystem s...
Article
Full-text available
Migratory species depend on connected habitats and appropriate migratory cues to complete their life cycles. Diadromous fish exemplify species with migratory life cycles by moving between connected freshwater and saltwater habitats to reproduce. However, migration increases the exposure of fish to multiple threats and it is critical that managers i...
Article
Full-text available
Coastal fish populations are typically threatened by multiple human activities, including fishing pressure and run-off of terrestrial pollution. Linking multiple threats to their impacts on fish populations is challenging because the threats may influence a species directly, or indirectly, via its habitats and its interactions with other species. H...
Article
Anthropogenic disturbances particularly affect biodiversity in sensitive freshwater ecosystems by causing species loss. Thus, measuring the response of species to multiple disturbances is a key issue for conservation and environmental management. As it is not practical to assess the response of every species in a community, we compared the performa...

To assess how climate change may decouple the ecosystems used by a migratory fish, and how decoupling influences priorities for stream restoration. Australia. We modelled changes in habitat suitability under climate change in both riverine and marine habitats for a threatened diadromous species, the Australian Grayling Prototroctes maraena, using n...
Article
Full-text available
Otolith oxygen (δ18O) and carbon (δ13C) stable isotopes of grey mullets (Mugil cephalus) were analyzed to reconstruct their migratory history. Juvenile mullets collected in coastal water had otolith δ18O values of approximately −0.8‰, representing their marine residence. Otolith δ18O values decreased by approximately 3‰ after the transplantation of...
Article
Full-text available
Animal-borne telemetry has revolutionised our ability to study animal movement, species physiology, demography and social structures, changing environments and the threats that animals are experiencing. While there will always be a need for basic ecological research and discovery, the current conservation crisis demands we look more pragmatically a...
Article
Full-text available
Food web structure along depth gradients in the South China Sea and off north eastern Taiwan were investigated by analyzing stable isotopic compositions of demersal fish, benthic megafauna invertebrates and fish stomach contents. Various prey items were found in fish stomach contents, which covered a wide range of delta C-13 values; however, most f...
Article
Otolith δ18O and δ13C of six species grenadiers were analyzed to reconstruct the historical residing depths and metabolic activity. During the larval to juvenile stage, Spicomacrurus kuronumai, Hymenocephalus lethonemus, and Bathygadus nipponicus gradually migrated from the mixed layer to the thermocline downward over a vertical distance >140 m aft...
