During October to December 1994 I monitored the spawning output of reproductive pairs of the damsel fish Pomacentrus amboinensis around the Lizard Island fringing reef on the northern Great Barrier Reef, Australia (14 [degrees] 41[prime] S, 145 [degrees] 27[prime] E).
Female Pomacentrus amboinensis were too small (6 to 9 g) to enable the humane extraction of blood, so hormonal assays were undertaken on samples of ovary tissue.
The present paper describes a new species of Pomacentrus that has been questionably identified as P.
Summary of counts of soft dorsal rays, soft anal rays, pectoral rays, tubed lateral-line scales, and gill rakers (GR) on the first branchial arch of Pomacentrus maafu.
Otolith microstructure in pre- and post-settlement Pomacentrus coelestis (Pisces: Pomacentridae).
Elemental signatures of Pomacentrus coelestis otoliths at multiple spatial scales on the Great Barrier Reef, Australia.
Across most contiguous-reef sites, the population density of the four most common species of site-attached damselfish, Pomacentrus
Doherty (1982, 1983) found a similar lack of effect by a West Pacific territorial damselfish, Pomacentrus
wardi, on the abundance of juveniles of a rare species in P.
Damselfishes of the genus Pomacentrus
are common inhabitants of coral reefs throughout the Indo-west and central Pacific Ocean.
Other reef inhabitants such as copepods also have visual pigments with sensitivities in the range of green and red fluorescent proteins (Cohen and Forward, 2002), and the reef fish Pomacentrus
amboinensis was recently found to be capable of color discrimination tasks (Siebeck et al.
Comparison of larval duration and pre- and post-settlement growth in two species of damselfish, Chromis atripectoralis and Pomacentrus
coelestis (Pisces: Pomacentridae), from the Great Barrier Reef.
Interspecific territoriality in a pomacentrid reef fish, Pomacentrus
In order to maximize the diversity within this group, we chose one common species from each of four common genera: Amphiprion, Chromis, Pomacentrus
, and Stegastes.
Fixed allele frequency differences among Paluan and Okinawan populations of the damselfishes Chrysiptera cyanea and Pomacentrus
Doherty (1982) found that survivorship was density independent for Pomacentrus
wardi and P.
