A broad diet helps tropical fish survive a range shift due to climate change

The global redistribution of marine and terrestrial species due to climate change is a major concern for conservation planners and resource managers. Now new research, using data from long term surveys of tropical fishes, indicates that traditional studies of this range shift phenomenon largely ignore the sequential nature of species movement. The study, published in […]

South Australia’s second large-scale oyster reef restoration will be constructed off the Adelaide metropolitan coast

A new shellfish reef is to be built at Glenelg, signalling a rapid transition from environmental amnesia to conservation action. In a stark contrast to the historical baseline of South Australian oyster reefs, University of Adelaide researchers’, Professor Sean Connell and Dr Heidi Alleway had discovered 1,500 km of Southern Australia coastline reefs had been lost […]

University of Adelaide research featured in New York Times – Shrimp snaps soften

Climate change is changing the way nature sounds. Professor Ivan Nagelkerken team’s research has been featured in a New York Times article which covers how climate change will silence some species and push others into new habits and habitats, changing when and where they sing, squeak, whistle, bellow or bleat. It will also change the sound […]

Can we meet the UN challenge to restore coastal wetlands by 2030?

As the UN declares the 2020s the ‘Decade of Ecosystem Restoration’, Professor Ivan Nagelkerken has collaborated with scientists worldwide to overcome the challenges of costal restorations. Leading coastal scientists from all over the world have joined forces calling for unified action on the future of coastal ecosystem conservation and restoration. This call comes in response to a declaration […]

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 […]

MEDIA RELEASE: Carbon storage in costal ecosystems receives new funding

Environment Institute researchers receive new funding to investigate the potential for more carbon storage in our coastal ecosystems. Leading the way in blue carbon opportunities, our researchers have recently won funding through the new Blue Carbon Futures Grants from the Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges Natural Resources Management Board. Blue carbon is carbon stored in […]
