Cross-boundary detrital subsidies: Detrital export and effects on receiving intertidal soft-sediment ecosystems(University of Waikato, 2017)Ecosystems are often connected by the transfer of resource ‘subsidies’ across their boundaries. In temperate estuaries, marine macrophyte leaf litter represents an obvious and visible detrital subsidy to nearby intertidal ...
Production and decay of mangrove (Avicennia marina subsp. australasica) detritus and its effects on coastal benthic communities(University of Waikato, 2012)Temperate mangrove forests have been poorly studied compared to their tropical counterparts, because they constitute just 1.4% of the global mangrove forest area. Research from tropical mangrove forests suggests they are ...
The genetic structure of New Zealand's coastal benthos: using the estuarine clam Austrovenus stutchburyi, to determine rates of gene flow and population connectivity(University of Waikato, 2011)For many benthic marine taxa, dispersal over large distances is dependent on a pelagic larval phase. It is through the dispersal process that benthic taxa can found new populations, colonise disturbed or degraded habitats ...
