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

Article
The three-dimensional structure provided by seagrasses facilitates diverse communities through the provision of refuge from predators, foraging opportunities, and the amelioration of physical stress. The effects of seagrass structural complexity on associated communities have been linked to seagrass shoot biomass and density, often using mesocosm e...
Article
Ecklonia radiata is the main foundation species in Australian temperate reefs, yet little has been published on its reproduction and how this may change across its depth range (1 - 50+ m). In this study, we examined the differences in sporophyte morphology and zoospore production during a reproductive season and across four depths (7, 15, 25 and 40...

Marine heatwaves (MHWs) have been documented around the world, causing widespread mortality of numerous benthic species on shallow reefs (less than 15 m depth). Deeper habitats are hypothesized to be a potential refuge from environmental extremes, though we have little understanding of the response of deeper benthic communities to MHWs. Here, we sh...

Across the globe, remote image data is rapidly being collected for the assessment of benthic communities from shallow to extremely deep waters on continental slopes to the abyssal seas. Exploiting this data is presently limited by the time it takes for experts to identify organisms found in these images. With this limitation in mind, a large effort...

Article
Scientists, industry and regulators are seeking to understand the influence of oil and gas infrastructure in our oceans to mitigate its impacts and maximise environmental benefits. This project equipped a standard work-class ROV with a light-weight stereo-video camera system to collect high definition imagery of fish and habitats formed by marine g...

Project
This project will synthesise the existing benchmark information to inform the design of optimal scientific long-term non-destructive monitoring of fish, seagrass and algal assemblages across the Geographe Marine Park (Commonwealth). In addition, this project will conduct a method comparison of the three most suitable sampling platforms for the long term monitoring of seagrass and algal assemblages within the Geographe Marine Park.
Archived project
The aim of this project is to understand the response of temperate shelf reefs to an extreme climatic event such as a marine heatwave and to evaluate the potential of these reefs to act as a refugia for sessile shallow-reef species.
