The world’s leading aquatic scientific societies with 80,000+ members urgently call for cuts to global greenhouse gas emissions

Dire consequences for freshwater and marine resources without significant and fast action. In an unprecedented statement released recently, the American Fisheries Society (AFS) joined forces with 110 aquatic scientific societies representing more than 80,000 scientists across the world to sound a climate change alarm.  The societies call for drastically curtailed global greenhouse gas emissions to […]

How much do we know about very own impact on the oceans?

Are human-induced stressors on our oceans interacting in more complex ways than we first thought? A special guest, blog post by PhD candidate Jackson Stockbridge. As undergraduate students and keen documentary viewers, we are often shown maps and figures which paint a grim picture of our impact on the ocean. Between overfishing, pollution and climate […]

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 […]

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 […]
