The Centre for Marine Ecosystems Research (CMER) brings together researchers with an interest in the functioning of marine ecosystems. The centre’s goal is to undertake applied and fundamental research that improves our understanding of coastal marine ecosystems. Broadly, we investigate ecological processes in coastal marine systems and how these respond to pressures, either natural or human induced.
The centre conducts research across the themes of:
- habitat connectivity and trophic interactions;
- management of human impacts;
- conservation and fisheries biology; and
- stress disturbance ecology.
Research in these themes encompasses a wide range of reef and seagrass ecosystems, from tropical to temperate environments.
