Our paper titled “Do Behavioral Foraging Responses of Prey to Predators Function Similarly in Restored and Pristine Foodwebs?” has been published in PLoS ONE. This study compares coral reefs with different histories of fishing pressure in the Line Islands in
Maina’s paper, “Modelling susceptibility of coral reefs to environmental stress using remote sensing data and GIS models” (2008, 212:180-199) has been listed as one of the most cited articles published in the journal Ecological Modelling since 2007. Congrats Maina!
The special issue of Journal of Experimental Biology, Biophysics, bioenergetics and mechanistic approaches to ecology, has been published with our paper titled “Integrating physiological and biomechanical drivers of population growth over environmental gradients on coral reefs.” From Inside JEB by
A PhD scholarship is available for work with Dr. Joshua Madin (Macquarie University), Dr. Andrew Baird (James Cook University) and Professor David Booth (University of Technology, Sydney) investigating the southward range expansions of reef corals along the New South Wales
Josh has been awarded an Australian Research Council Future (ARC) Fellowship for a project integrating biomechanics and ecology: moving from an individual- to population-level understanding of the effects of environmental change. The fellowship provides four years of salary and research
With collaborators from JCU and UTS, we have received $200,000 from the NSW Environmental Trust to set up permanent transects along the NSW coastline and, in combination with experiments and a database of coral life histories, identify characteristics associated with
