(2013-06-14) - Journal article
    Ecosystems are under pressure from multiple human disturbances whose impact may vary depending on environmental context. We experimentally evaluated variation in the separate and combined effects of the loss of a key ...
  • Light-dependant biostabilisation of sediments by stromatolite assemblages

    For the first time we have investigated the natural ecosystem engineering capacity of stromatolitic microbial assemblages. Stromatolites are laminated sedimentary structures formed by microbial activity and are considered ...
  • Organizing, supporting and linking the world marine biodiversity research community 

    Costello, M.J.; Archambault, P.; Chavanich, S.; Miloslavich, P.; Paterson, D.M.; Phang, S.-M.; Sousa Pinto, I.; Pierrot-Bults, A.; Song, S.; Soto, E.H.; Stenseth, N.C.; Molodtsova, T.N.; Thorndyke, M. (2015-02-10) - Journal item
  • The pervasive role of biological cohesion in bedform development 

    Malarkey, Jonathan; Baas, Jaco; Hope, Julie Anne; Aspden, Rebecca Jane; Parsons, Daniel R.; Peakall, Jeff; Paterson, David Maxwell; Schindler, Robert; Ye, Leiping; Lichtman, Ian D.; Bass, Sarah J.; Davies, Alan G.; Manning, Andrews J.; Thorne, Peter D. (2015-02-06) - Journal article
    Sediment fluxes in aquatic environments are crucially dependent on bedform dynamics. However, sediment-flux predictions rely almost completely on clean-sand studies, despite most environments being composed of mixtures of ...
  • Photoacclimation, growth and distribution of massive coral species in clear and turbid waters
