Description

This paper explores the factors influencing or controlling West Indies reef fish assemblages, using an extensive underwater survey (mensurative experiment). The sampling units represented variation in substrate type, depth, and geography. For that, the distribution of coastal species assemblages was examined in different islands, from the Dominican Republic in the north to Bequia (Grenadines) in the south. Visual surveys were made by snorkeling and SCUBA diving in various habitats from the surface to 55 m deep. Presence–absence data from 248 sites and 228 species were analysed by canonical redundancy analyses. Three quantitative variables (depth, latitude, and location of the sites along the Caribbean arch) as well as qualitative descriptors corresponding to 10 habitat types were used as explanatory variables in the canonical analyses.../...
