    Abstract

    OBJECTIVES
    1. Devise quantitative and readily usable approaches for classifying the local-scale nearshore habitats within a range of estuaries in south-western Australia and predicting the habitat to which any nearshore site in those systems should be assigned.

    2. Determine statistically how the compositions of the fish and benthic invertebrate assemblages in selected south-western Australian estuaries are related to habitat type.

    3. Formulate a readily usable and reliable method for predicting which fish and benthic invertebrate species are likely to be abundant at any particular nearshore site in one of the above estuaries.
