–Photography of dugongs from a sailing catamaran documented variation in skin color, 9 types of scars (including some possibly due to sunburn, and parallel scars made by tusks of males), and repeated sightings of individuals in small coves over periods of 2-35 days. Irregularities in fluke shapes could also be observed in deeper water where dugongs dove more steeply.

Behaviour 134(5-6): 433-462. 6 figs. May 1997.
–Describes dugong behavior in a shallow, sparsely-vegetated cove of Shark Bay, Western Australia, where presumed males defended small zones of activity, performed displays, and evidently mated. This aggregation of males on display territories meets all the requirements of a classic lek, in contrast to the "mating herd" pattern of sirs. elsewhere.

A Halodule-dominated community in a subtropical embayment: physical environment, productivity, biomass, and impact of dugong grazing.
Aquatic Botany 71: 179-197. 5 tabs. 5 figs.
–Observations at Shark Bay, Australia, suggested that local dominance of a Halodule-Penicillus community is dependent on exclusion of competitots by freshwater and sediment inflows. High levels of UV radiation may set the latitudinal limit of H. uninervis distribution. Dugong rooting may redistribute nutrients and stimulate nitrogen fixation and productivity. Halodule rhizomes may provide dugongs with maximal energy return for foraging effort, and be more important to dugongs than Halodule leaves.
