Designing connected marine reserves in the face of global warming

Global warming can disrupt ecological connectivity among marine reserves by shortening potential dispersal pathways through changes in larval physiology. These changes can compromise the effectiveness of marine reserve networks, thus requiring adjusting their design to account for warmer oceans. To address this challenge, researchers from the Conservation Planning Group are collaborating with scientists, agencies, NGOs, … Continue reading Designing connected marine reserves in the face of global warming

Studying collaboration networks in the Fitzroy River catchment

An ongoing study by researchers of the Conservation Planning Group can help organisations involved in natural resource management (NRM) in the Fitzroy River catchment to better understand how they collaborate with one another. Funded by the Northern Australia Hub of the National Environmental Research Program (NERP), researchers from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral … Continue reading Studying collaboration networks in the Fitzroy River catchment
