Research

Research in the Marine Ecology Group (MEG) is diverse and centers on the following four main areas of expertise. While these research areas appear disparate, they have the unifying theme of assessing human impacts (e.g., climate change, commercial fishing) on ecological resilience. We have a particular focus on threatened species, and those that have the capacity to impart substantial community changes, such as ecosystem engineers.

Our research focuses on the following areas (click the link to learn more):

(1) Impacts of climate change on resilience and sustainability of marine systems


(2) Ecology and behaviour of marine organisms


(3) Conservation and sustainability


(4) Aquaculture of sea urchins
