Funding

Data on coral reef fish communities was collected by the NOAA Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center’s Coral Reef Ecosystem Program. Funding for surveys and to support program operation was provided by NOAA’s Coral Reef Conservation Program (http://coralreef.noaa.gov). JPWR was supported by funding from The Leverhulme Trust and the University of Victoria, JMM was supported by an NSERC postdoctoral fellowship, LAY was supported by a National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) postdoctoral fellowship funded by the National Science Foundation (DBI-1052875), and JKB acknowledges support from a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) Discovery Grant and from an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship in Ocean Science. The funders had no role in study design, data collection and analysis, decision to publish, or preparation of the manuscript.
