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
Anthony is Melbourne Enterprise Fellow - Integrative Environmental Research, working to increase the impact of environmental research into public value outcomes (i.e., policy, planning, management and regulation). He is a marine ecologist by trade and have worked in (and with) academia, government and industry in Australia and the USA, including more than 15 years in leadership roles in public sector science organisations. His experience spans environmental regulation, coastal and marine climate adaptation, citizen science and conservation science. His growing research areas include environmental impacts (plastics and other pollutants), coastal adaptation to climate change, citizen science and integrating research into practice in Government).
Coastal flooding and erosion cause significant social and economic impacts, globally. There is a growing interest in using natural habitats such as mangroves to defend coastlines. The protective services of mangroves, however, have not been assessed in the same rigorous engineering and socio-economic terms as rock revetments, and therefore are ofte...
Traditional coastal protection methods that rely on built, hard structures like seawalls may not be effective to keep pace with a changing climate. Nature-based coastal defences based on habitat restoration can be an adaptive coastal protection alternative.
Citizen science involves collaboration between multi-sector agencies and the public to address a natural resource management issue. The Sea Search citizen science programme involves community groups in monitoring and collecting subtidal rocky reef and intertidal rocky shore data in Victorian Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), Australia. In this study w...
Management responsibilities for the system of marine national parks and sanctuaries declared in Victoria, Australia in 2002 have created imperatives for robust, scientifically defendable approaches to identifying threats to valued ecological attributes of the parks, setting management priorities, and developing monitoring systems. We are developing...
The declaration in 2002 of a complete system of marine national parks and marine sanctuaries in Victoria created imperatives for robust, scientifically defendable approaches to identifying threats to valued ecological attributes of the parks, setting management priorities and developing monitoring systems. We developed an inclusive and transparent...
In flow tank experiments, I tested the relative importance of active and passive processes to larvae settling on manufactured casts that were hydrodynamically rough at a small scale (mm to <1 cm). I predefined two distinct regions of small-scale flow that I used to manipulate larval settlement behaviour of the red abalone Haliotis rufescens Swainso...
We report the results of 2 types of field experiment done to examine the influence of the interaction between small-scale flow disruptions and chemical cues associated with conspecific individuals on the settlement of larvae of 2 congeneric barnacle species, Elminius modestus and E. covertus. One series of experiments (ridge experiments) examined t...
