Figure 1. The experimental set up of temperature effect on predator-prey interactions is depicted in the diagram. Fathead minnows were kept in one tank, which was placed close to a separate tank with the yellow perch. Two feeding devices were used: the one closer to the yellow perch tank was considered the high-risk feeder and the one further way, the low-risk feeder. For trials where no predator is present, a divider between the tanks was used to hide the predator.To eat or be eaten
    Figure 1. (a) Theses images show hard coral and macroalgae, the two groups most often used to assess reef health. (b) These images show reef builders and fleshy algae, which can be used to assess reef-health with a more community-based approach.Re-evaluating the health of coral reef communities: baselines and evidence for human impacts across the central Pacific
