Introduction
I am a Marine Science PhD student studying fish recruitment processes in remote and challenging macrotidal ecosystems in Western Australia. My research interests include fish nursery habitat function, seascape connectivity, and anthropogenic and climate associated impacts on marine systems.

Article
Full-text available
Divergence into discrete foraging specialist morphs living in sympatry is relatively well described in lacustrine fishes of the Salmonidae. Although piscivorous forms of Salmo trutta have been widely reported, other trophic foraging specialists are strangely rarely recorded amongst Salmo species. Microsatellite and mitochondrial genetic data segreg...

Western Australia’s coral reefs have largely escaped the chronic pressures affecting other reefs around the world, but are regularly affected by seasonal storms and cyclones, and increasingly by heat stress and coral bleaching. Reef systems north of 18°S have been impacted by heat stress and coral bleaching during strong El Niño phases and those fu...
Article
Understanding the dynamics of juvenile fish populations is a key component to understanding variation in adult populations, however, juvenile fish are frequently found in a variety of structurally complex habitats which are often not easily sampled. The use of baited (BRUV) and unbaited (RUV) remote underwater stereo-video to study juvenile fish po...
Article
Macroalgae‐dominated reefs are a prominent habitat in tropical seascapes that support a diversity of fishes, including fishery target species. To what extent, then, do macroalgal habitats contribute to small‐scale tropical reef fisheries? To address this question we: (1) Quantified the macroalgae‐associated fish component in catches from 133 small‐...
Article
Full-text available
Canopy-forming macroalgae can construct extensive meadow habitats in tropical seascapes occupied by fishes that span a diversity of taxa, life-history stages and ecological roles. Our synthesis assessed whether these tropical macroalgal habitats have unique fish assemblages, provide fish nurseries and support local fisheries. We also applied a meta...

Monitoring effects of contaminants at lower levels of biological organisation (e.g. biochemical and cellular) allows for mechanistic evaluation of effects of contaminant exposure through laboratory exposures. However, higher level organism effects (e.g. physiological and behavioural) are deemed more ecologically-relevant. In the present study, cell...
