Temporal changes in benthic communities


Starting in 2004 I began collecting large diameters cores from GBR sediments. Molluscan shells from these cores are being used to examine the natural variability of these ecosystems as well as to identify potential changes in the modern molluscan communities associated with the colonisation of eastern Australia. This project has spawned a number of secondary projects aimed at addressing some of the assumptions underlying this project. Starting in 2013 we have expanded this approach to estuaries in New South Wales.
