Novel Diagnostic Tools for Chemically Stressed Waterways

Back to search results

Humans rely on coastal ecosystems for a range of services, such as food and recreational amenity, and they are amongst the most intense areas of development. Human activities introduce an array of interacting stressors that affect both the diversity and functioning of marine ecosystems, and, in some cases, cause ecosystem collapse. The key to sustainable coastal development is discovering accurate and efficient diagnostic tools for assessing ecosystem integrity ('health'). The vision of this research is to conduct multidisciplinary environmental investigations towards the development of novel ecosystem-health diagnostics. Research techniques will range from ecotoxicology and acoustic mapping to molecular bioinformatics.
