Dear Victor ,
Myself and several honours students tested some of the methods in this
manual in Sulawesi.
We had four main focus areas for the studies (in brief)
1. Correlating rates of feeding and reef habitat (Ch. trifasciatus-redfins)
2. Which (if any) provided a closer correlation with habitat; using total
number of chaetodonts along transects (abundance and species) or selected
3.The incidence/rate of aggressive/submissive interactions of Ch.
Trifasciatus (intra and inter specific) and correlations with reef habitat
4.Investigating habitat preferences in pristine and degraded habitats
The data is still being worked up. What particular aspect are you interested
