Dr Kathryn McMahon from ECU's Centre for Marine Ecosystems Research, and Professor Gary Kendrick from UWA ran a successful workshop from October 16-17 entitled Ecological and evolutionary drivers of movement of seagrasses – identifying key processes for connectivity. This was part of the Collaborative Research Network between ECU and UWA. There were eleven attendees from Edith Cowan University, University of Adelaide, Murdoch University and University of Western Australia. We synthesized the ways in which seagrasses can move using a movement ecology framework and how this varies over spatial and temporal scales. The workshop resulted in a draft paper and questions for further research in understanding ecology, evolution and connectivity of seagrasses.
