At the Centre for Marine Ecosystems Research (CMER) we use applied and fundamental research to improve our understanding of the ecological processes of coastal marine systems, and how these respond to both natural and human induced pressures.
The centre conducts research across the themes of:
Research in these themes encompasses a wide range of reef and seagrass ecosystems, from tropical to temperate environments.
A major field trip by CMER researchers to South Australian Gulfs to core seagrass meadows will be used to reveal recent pollution history.
Seagrass experts come together for a 2 day workshop, December 2014.
In the last month, Dr Kathryn McMahon and Dr Christin SĂ€wstrĂ¶m from CMER conducted research in the Kimberley, based at the Kimberley Marine Research Station at Cygnet Bay.
