Further studies focusing on the collection of focal behavioural data will help address how these behavioural processes influence humpback dolphin distribution in the NMP region. Dynamic stability of coral reefs on the west Australian coast. In the second approach, we used a method described in Unsworth et al.
The Ningaloo Coast is the formal name for the nomination area extending southwards along the coast from the Muiron Islands and Northwest Cape. For years in which surveys were not conducted we allocated a missing data value. In this study, we applied an ensemble species distribution modelling approach, combining results of six modelling algorithms to identify areas of high probability of occurrence of the globally Vulnerable Australian humpback dolphin in northern Ningaloo Marine Park NMPnorth-western Australia.
However, our understanding of the distribution and habitat use of most of these species, including the recently described Australian humpback dolphin Sousa sahulensisremains limited, hampering conservation and management efforts.
The combined research program of over 150 projects has generated a fundamental at least 10-fold improvement in knowledge and understanding of the physical and biological processes that maintain Ningaloo Reef and of the uses, values and impacts of humans that utilise the region. An additional and complementary plausible explanation is that the reef within Mandu SZ is nested in a larger contiguous area of fringing reef; the movement ranges of some taxa—including emperors ,—is likely to result in many individuals moving outside the SZ, resulting in enough fishing mortality to produce a decline.
Effectiveness of terrestrial protected areas in reducing habitat loss and population declines. Decadal trends in marine reserves reveal differential rates of change in direct and indirect effects.
A more immediate, interim management measure could include the development of educational and interpretive material e.
karst aquifer system at crest of range in Mandu Limestone S;• At this reef cleaning station the limestone reef, in deep water, is covered in thousands of golden cardinalfish.
The declining abundance of some species such as emperors is plausibly due to fishing.
