Marine Microbial Ecology


Marine microbial ecology is a comparatively new theme within the Centre and an invaluable contributor to gaining greater understanding in marine ecosystem processes. Numerous microbial and biogeochemical processes occur in the ocean at any given time that greatly influence marine life and are vital for the inherent functioning of marine ecosystems. The main focus in this theme is to improve our understanding of baseline microbial community dynamics in benthic coastal ecosystems. We lead several PhD, Masters and Honours students in a range of topics from understanding the role of microbes in nitrogen cycling within seagrass biofilm communities to investigations of microbial communities in the guts of herbivorous fish.
