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
Oil spills pose a significant threat to marine biodiversity. Crude oil can partition into sediments where it may be persistent, placing benthic species such as decapods at particular risk of exposure. Transcriptomic and histological tools are often used to investigate the effects of hydrocarbon exposure on marine organisms following oil spill event...
Crude oil is a key contaminant in aquatic environments entering via natural and anthropogenic sources, causing toxicity in marine organisms. Traditionally, biomarkers have been utilised to determine crude oil exposure and effects in aquatic organisms, however advances in genomic technologies has led to increased adoption of transcriptomic approache...
The deep sea (> 500 m) of the Great Australian Bight (GAB) has not been well studied even though it is believed to have high conservation values as evidenced by large marine reserves, and where adjacent (continental shelf) waters support important commercial fisheries and large populations of marine mammals. Recent interest in developing the region...
Biomarkers are frequently used to determine the exposure of fish to petroleum hydrocarbons following an oil spill. These biomarkers must be chosen carefully if they are to be used to determine sublethal toxic impacts as well as oil exposure. Many commonly used biomarkers relate to the metabolism of high molecular weight, typically pyrogenic, polycy...
