Media release: Nutrient pollution is changing sounds in the sea

Nutrient pollution emptying into seas from cities, towns and agricultural land is changing the sounds made by marine life – and potentially upsetting navigational cues for fish and other sea creatures, a new University of Adelaide study has found. Published online in the journal Landscape Ecology, the research found that marine ecosystems degraded by ‘eutrophication’, […]

Ocean warming and acidification are changing shark behaviour

As the Earth’s oceans warms, sea-dwelling creatures experience a raft of changes. While much attention has been directed towards small-bodied fishes, we know relatively little about the effects of ocean warming and acidification on large predators like sharks. A new publication by the Environment Institute’s Jennifer Pistevos, Associate Professor Ivan Nagelkerken, Dr Tullio Rossi and Professor […]

Coral Bleaching Explained-will 400 year old coral resist climate change?

Frank the coral has been living peacefully on the beautiful Great Barrier Reef for 400 years. However, Frank noticed that in the last century it started to get gradually hotter… until in 2016 the water temperature went completely out of control putting Frank’s life at risk. Will this old giant resist the stress of a […]

Podcast: The silence of the shrimp

PhD candidate Tullio Rossi was interviewed by Radio Adelaide‘s Ewart Shaw. He discusses his research about the silencing of shrimps. Snapping Shrimps are the loudest invertebrate in the ocean, and their peculiar sound, itself a complex scientific phenomenon, is a vital indicator of ocean health and welfare. Tullio Rossi, is also the creator of an award-winning […]

COSMOS Feature: Snapping shrimps silenced

Research showing how shrimps are being silenced, was recently published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B. The research, led by Associate Professor Ivan Nagelkerken, PhD student Tullio Rossi and Professor Sean Connell has been featured in COSMOS Magazine. The researchers recorded the crackle of Alpheus shrimp near naturally acidic underwater vents and found fewer and quieter snaps. Not only does […]

Media Release: Silent oceans: acidification stops shrimp chorus

Snapping shrimps, the loudest invertebrate in the ocean, may be silenced under increasing ocean acidification, a University of Adelaide study has found. Published today in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, the researchers report that under forecast levels of CO2 predicted to be found in oceans by the end of the century, the […]

Podcast: Ocean acidification could cause fish to be lost at sea

New research shows that increased CO2 levels interfere with the ability of baby fish to find a home. Sarah Martin from Radio Adelaide spoke with University of Adelaide marine biology PhD student Tullio Rossi about his research into the effects of ocean acidification on fish behaviour. Listen to the full interview.
