Tropical fish are invading Australian ocean water

A University of Adelaide study of shallow-water fish communities on rocky reefs in south-eastern Australia has found climate change is helping tropical fish species invade temperate Australian waters. “The fish are travelling into these Australian ecosystems as larvae caught in the Eastern Australian Current, which is strengthening due to the warming climate,” said the University […]

Strengthening Australia and Vietnam partnerships: Advancing research and understanding on designing and operating high integrity blue carbon market

Vietnam, with its long coastline, is vulnerable to climate change impacts. Coastal forests, thought of as a ‘protection forest’, make up just 3.5% of the total national forest area but they play a substantial role in generating local livelihood incomes, mitigating the impacts of storm surges and coastal erosion, and supporting carbon sequestration and biodiversity […]
