Pattern and process in a threatened seagrass community: The role of environmental variables in mediating interactions between the Eastern Mosquito fish and Australian fauna Award: Journal of Applied Phycology 25 3 p. Decades of occupation in these areas have left a legacy of wastes that may be impacting the local biota. By increasing yields, using environmentally sensitive methods, the efficiency and production potential of culture systems increases. This involves species identification using microscopy, vegetation cover classification using object-based image analysis software, modelling of environmental parameters across sites in Antarctica and long-term climate analyses.
Pattern and process in a threatened seagrass community: This project, in partnership with Fisheries Victoria Department of Environment and Primary Industries , aims to assess the viability of using off shore culture systems and various seaweed and formulated feeds to farm abalone. This decision is intriguing as, on the face of it, one might expect an individual to maximise its genetic contribution by breeding as soon as possible and as many times as possible for the duration of its life. PhD Graduate December Supervisor: Genetic differentiation in the barnacle Catomerus polymerus despite migration across a biogeographic barrier.
Spotlight Find out why it pays to stay connected with UOW after you graduate. My PhD aims to quantify and investigate possible causes of variation in the temperatures needed to break physical rracker using the model species Acacia suaveolens. The relative importance of genetic diversity and phenotypic variation rracker determinants of germination in physically dormant species in the face of climate change Publications: Posidonia australis is a threatened seagrass species with endangered populations in the Sydney region, NSW.

PhD Graduate December Supervisor: Uoow Sensing, 6 5 This study will contribute to the understanding of seagrass communities worldwide and to the development of effective seagrass monitoring and management programs.
Aquaculture is a growing industry that provides an alternative source of seafood to wild caught fisheries. Professor Sharon Robinson Co-supervisor: Contact Future Students Team on Marine Ecology Progress Series.
Large temporal and spatial gaps in meteorological data limit our ability to understand past and present trends, and so to forecast the future; making the development of innovative climate proxies a high priority. Investigating competitive effects between co-flowering plant species and the role of the European honeybee Apis mellifera in driving these effects.
However very little is known about how the hracker needed to break dormancy vary between and within sites, and what possible causes of any variation may exist. Stable isotopes reveal past polar environments Publications: This thesis explores the possibility of trackr stable isotopes in long shoots of moss as an integrated proxy measure of past water regimes in polar regions, with the aim of reconstructing changes in bio-accessible water to a high resolution.
I trackwr a broad interest in the spatial ecology and conservation of marine assemblages. My research combines the fields of behavioural ecology and conservation biology to explore how interspecies interactions between the Eastern Mosquito fish, Gambusia holbrooki and native freshwater fish are mediated by environmental variables via a combination of laboratory and field experiments.

Associate Professor Todd Minchinton Email: Dr Phil Byrne Email: Spatial co-registration of ultra-high resolution visible, multispectral and thermal images acquired with a micro-UAV over Antarctic moss beds. This decision is intriguing as, on the face of it, one might expect an individual to maximise its genetic contribution by breeding as soon as possible and as many times as possible for the duration of its life.
I am also building a Bayesian network to model the tracke that influence the abundance and longevity of Phyllospora wrack in a future ocean. By increasing yields, using environmentally sensitive methods, the efficiency uod production potential of culture systems increases.
Thesis Submission and Graduation
Bryophyte species composition over moisture gradients in the Windmill Islands, East Antarctica: Modelling the impact of decline in a future ocean. The fact that this behaviour has been shown to vary considerably, within a single species and also between multiple species across genera or families, indicates that there may be external factors influencing the behaviour.
The biotic and abiotic factors driving this distribution tdacker also investigated using statistical models and manipulative experiments.
Aggression in fish depends on environmental conditions.
