Benthic Ecology Group

 

Welcome to the Benthic Ecology Lab 

The Benthic Ecology Lab is a research group in the Department of Biological Sciences, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia, led by Associate Professor Melanie Bishop. Our research investigates how the coastal zone might be sustainably developed to protect estuarine and near shore biodiversity and its important socio-economic values. We focus on temperate coastal ecosystems, which are not only one of the most important ecosystems in terms of marine productivity and nutrient cycling, but are also areas that have borne the brunt of human impacts.


We use field experiments to address questions at ecologically meaningful scales, spanning coastlines and years
