We compared diversity of marine invertebrates along mid-reef, reef crest and reef slope regions in the coral
reef at Tunku Abdul Rahman marine sanctuary at Gaya Island in Sabah, Malaysia. 12 plots were placed in 4 replications in each marine zonation.
The most diversity in marine invertebrates was found in the reef crest area, possibly because this region contained the most coral cover,
providing the most invertebrate microhabitats.
