Overview of thesis

Periphyton is a complex mixture of autotrophic and heterotrophic micro-organisms growing on submerged substrate. Periphyton are able to respond rapidly to changes in environmental conditions allowing them to be used as viable bio-indicators of a systems health. My study will provide an assessment of the periphytic accumulations in Geographe Bay, Western Australia through a manipulative experiment to gain understanding of the role of nutrients in controlling periphyton abundance and composition in order to determine if periphyton can be used as a bio-indicator.
