Dive into our Winter 2018 Newsletter to learn about how we're expanding our engagement with Queensland's marine users to SPOT, LOG and MAP species in this iconic region, and to also access a free-to-downlaod poster of ocean temperature changes that have occurred in south-eastern Australia over the past 24 years. You'll also find fascinating articles about the hottest topics in marine science, from ocean heatwaves to artificial ...
Redmap’s Queensland chapter has been operational since our national launch in 2012, but today we announced our intent to enhance our engagement with Queensland’s marine users to better understand the changes that are occurring in one of the world’s most iconic marine environments. Read on to learn more about what was announced at the formal launch held at James Cook University in Townsville today, and to also ...
Sightings of yellowtail kingfish in Tasmanian waters have been regularly logged with Redmap since the program began. These records are particularly valuable because they indicate that kingfish from eastern Australia could be on the move south, suggesting that some dedicated scientific research may be necessary to get to the bottom of what’s going on.
In this article, PhD student and kingfish project leader Curtis Champion describes recently published findings ...
Jorge E. Ramos is a marine biologist with a PhD in Natural and Physical Sciences from the University of Tasmania. His PhD project focused on examining the life-history characteristics, genetics and population dynamics of the range extending common Sydney octopus (Octopus tetricus).
Searching for patterns in the genetics of range-shifting animals can help us to understand why some animals, and not others, are shifting where they live in response to ...
Just as floods, cyclones and droughts are considered extreme weather events on land, extreme climatic events also occur in the ocean. Work being undertaken by the Marine Heatwaves International Working Group has resulted in the development of a formal definition and classification system for these extreme marine events, allowing for global patterns in their occurrence and duration to be assessed.
Artificial reefs are commonly deployed off coastlines around the world to restore degraded marine habitats and provide new fishing opportunities, but they also provide an opportunity to put a little art into the ocean.
Freely available field manuals to help scientists, managers and students design and conduct fieldwork
A suite of manuals that describe best practises for collecting data from the marine environment have been created and made publicly available by the team at the Marine Biodiversity Hub, National Environmental Science Program.
Decoration, display, warning, deception, camouflage…. colour is an important feature for fishes.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. This is certainly the case for a new Redmap poster that maps changes in sea surface temperature off Tasmania over the past 24 years.
Ambitious field experiments reveal the effects of ocean acidification on entire coral reef communities
Two landmark experiments have gone beyond the laboratory to show how entire coral reef communities are being affected by ocean acidification in the wild!
