Steve is a marine benthic ecologist with primary interests in the amazing biodiversity that can be found in our marine and estuarine environments, especially the molluscs. Much of this diversity is under threat from a wide range of human impacts and Steve is dedicated to understanding these impacts with a view to fostering long-term sustainability. Because little is known about the distribution and dynamics of marine biodiversity in Australia, especially in subtidal environments, much of my research focuses on measuring and monitoring diversity and determining the main factors that cause it to change - this includes both natural and human-induced impacts.
