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.
Congratulations to Rozaimi on the publication of the second paper from his PhD research. His latest publication in Estuarine & Coastal Shelf Science is titled “Long-term carbon storage and its recent loss in an estuarine Posidonia australis meadow (Albany, Western Australia)”.
Within the latest publication by CMER researchers they reconstruct the contamination history of Oyster Harbour using the sediments of a Posidonia australis meadow as an archive.
Marine scientist Professor Thomas Schlacher will be joining the Centre until December 2015.
