The structure of rocky reef fish assemblages across a nearshore to coastal islands' gradient in Southeastern Brazil

Abstract: Local assemblages of fishes associated with reefs are influenced by interactions among the availability of larvae and survival of recruits with subsequent biotic and abiotic forcing, as well as by periodic and episodic disturbances of varying natures and magnitudes. Therefore, besides being structurally heterogeneous and patchily distributed, reef systems are strongly contextdependent due to the influence of a broad array of ecological processes. In order to assess interactions of local factors that influence … Show more

“…For instance, we recorded comparatively more reef fish species than other surveys conducted in nearby areas, i.e. 106 species in Gibran & Moura (2012) and 67 species in Teixeira- Neves et al (2015). Island is a coastal site largely dominated by the warm and less saline (due to riverine inflow) Coastal Water (CW), as well as by the warm (>18 o C) and saline water from the south-flowing Brazil Current (BC) (Matsuura 1986).…”

“…In addition, the region is affected by upwellings of the cold (8)(9)(10)(11)(12)(13)(14)(15)(16)(17)(18) o C) South Atlantic Central Water (SACW) during the austral summer and spring (Matsuura 1986). Such frequent cold water intrusions, as well as the relatively wide depth range of the AISP, account for the presence of several reef fishes with subtropical and temperate affinities (Floeter et al 2001, Luiz Jr. et al 2008, Gibran & Moura 2012, Pinheiro et al 2015b. Furthermore, the high structural complexity of rocky shores , Dominici-Arosema & Wolf 2006, Gibran & Moura 2012, Teixeira-Neves et al 2015 and the broad depth range of coastal islands (Pereira-Filho et al 2011, Gibran & Moura 2012, Teixeira-Neves et al 2015, as well as the proximity to large estuaries and the protected status of the AISP, are responsible for the relatively high richness of fishes recorded herein.…”
