In this study, we used a semi-portable, digital, 3-D underwater observatory designed for long-term exposure in shallow water habitats to assess fish-habitat interactions to artificial structures of different complexity. The observatory was mounted on a cable-car system and was moved along a 50 m transect parallel to five artificial structures of different complexity and one control site. The optical unit took high-resolution digital images, in pairs, from each structure and the control site at a frequency of 30 min over 24 h and was then moved remotely to the next structure. The system was operated for 2 mo without being recovered and took a total of 2160 stereoscopic image pairs. The system proved highly valuable in assessing small-scale temporal patterns in fish-habitat interactions, as well as changes in habitat preferences of fish over the diel cycle. Such small-scale temporal and spatial patterns are important for a detailed understanding of specieshabitat interactions, not only in fish but also in most aquatic macro-organisms. Nevertheless, such patterns can hardly be assessed using classical sampling devices due to labor and animal protection restrictions. However, the possibility of a significant increase in quantity of sampling through the use of remote imaging technology is accompanied by a significant increase in labor costs for image analysis. Therefore, further progress in semi- and fully automated systems for image analysis is needed, including 3-D imaging tools, for ecological studies.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Heine, Georg</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dcterms:title>Habitat structure and fish : assessing the role of habitat complexity for fish using a small, semi-portable, 3D underwater observatory</dcterms:title> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
