How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
My PhD research focuses on the unique turbid reef systems of Exmouth Gulf, WA. This project assesses coral reefs resilience and restoration potential within the Exmouth Gulf which is located directly adjacent to the Ningaloo Reef, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. My aim is to explore the potential of these turbid reefs to function as coral refugia or recruitment source to facilitate the ongoing management, resilience and restoration of the Ningaloo Reef.
Increasing evidence suggests that coral reefs exposed to elevated turbidity may be more resilient to climate change impacts and serve as an important conservation hotspot. However, lo-gistical difficulties in studying turbid environments have led to poor representation of these reef types within the scientific literature, with studies using differe...
Barnacles that fit morphologically into the description of the pyrgomatid genus Cantellius were retrieved from hydrozoan Stylasteridae. The use of molecular markers also confirmed the assignment of these barnacles to the genus Cantellius. Hitherto, stylasterids have not been recorded as hosts of pyrgomatids. This finding conflicts with and refutes...
Wormlions are fly larvae that construct pit-traps in loose soil and ambush prey that fall into their pits. They occur in high numbers in cities, below any man-made shelter providing protection from direct sunlight, such as a concrete roof with a thin layer of sand at the ground. Their natural habitat is either caves or any natural structure that pr...
Recruitment is a fundamental process that influences coral population dynamics as well as reef community structure. To date, coral recruitment success rates are poorly quantified because survey methods are labor-intensive and require manual interpretation. Thus, they are prone to human errors and have low repeatability—a gap we aim to bridge in thi...
Google Scholar is missing my name in the citation of my paper even though I'm the first auother.
Did anyone come across such an error? and knows how to fix it?
