Role of seabirds as transporters of marine resources
This research project aims to examine the extent to which marine-derived nutrients subsidise terrestrial production in the lower west coast of Western Australia. The main focus is to investigate the role of seabirds as transporters of marine resources from the ocean to land, and determine the influence of these resources to terrestrial island ecosystems. The study area includes islands and coastal regions from Shoalwater Bay (Rockingham) in the south, to Jurien Bay in the north.
