Summary: 
Trophic interactions on coral reefs. (A) Trophic pyramid showing the flow of energy from primary producers such as the benthic algae to apex predators such as the White-tip reef shark shown. (B) Herbivores such as parrotfish leave characteristic scrape marks with their teeth as they feed. (C) Other invertebrates such as chitons graze the surfaces in between coral colonies and may be significant as cryptic reef grazers. (D) Another important input of energy to the reef system occurs through the large numbers of particle feeders that line the seaward edges of coral reefs forming the so-called ‘wall of mouths’ (Diagram: D. Kleine and O. Hoegh-Guldberg; Photos: O. Hoegh-Guldberg).
