PAPER: Tropical and temperate species are living well together under climate change

Researchers at the University of Adelaide have found tropical and temperate coral reef fish can co-exist. As our climate changes, many terrestrial and marine species are forced to extend their ranges poleward, to stay within the bounds of their thermal tolerances. However, when such species enter higher latitude ecosystems, they engage in innovative interactions with local […]

Healthy coastal habitats essential for combating climate change

Blue carbon ecosystems such as seagrasses, mangroves and tidal saltmarshes have exceptional capacity to sequester carbon dioxide. Compared to many terrestrial forests, these coastal vegetation communities can accumulate carbon at faster rates and store it for longer periods, making them an important tool to combat climate change. The Goyder Institute for Water Research’s Coastal Carbon […]
