I am investigating herbivory within temperatesouthwest Australian seagrass meadows. Temperate seagrass habitats arecharacterized by predominantly omnivorous fishes that exert very little directcontrol on seagrass production. Climate change-induced tropicalisation has seenthe arrival of the tropical herbivore Siganusfuscescens in temperate coastal waters. I am exploring questions regardingthe diets of a number of temperate fish species, and comparing them to S. fuscescens, and additionallycomparing the diet of S. fuscescensacross different climate zones.
