Drifting plankton are subjected to a wider range of temperatures in their travels than previously thought

Drifting plankton are well-travelled

Plankton have evolved to survive a wide range of conditions, thanks to their unexpectedly vast ocean travels, a new study, lead by Associate Professor Martina Doblin, suggests

A group of pathogenic marine bacteria, responsible for many more deaths worldwide each year than sharks, reside within Sydney Harbour, UTS scientists have found

Pathogens in Sydney Harbour

UTS scientists have identified sites in Sydney Harbour where Vibrio species occur, providing information about potential ‘hot spots’ for future pathogen outbreaks
UTS led research shows that the detrimental impacts caused by ocean warming and acidification are unlikely to be off-set by corals being able to acclimatise in high-variance habitats such as seagrass.
Future Reefs Team Leader, Associate Prof. David Suggett, explains the GBRMPA Coral Bleaching Response Plan in the wake of El Niño
The Amazon rainforest is more limited by sunlight than water says Professor Alfredo Huete in a Nature paper that challenges assumptions about rainforest productivity
A new tool, developed by analysing 14 years of NASA satellite data, indicates that South East Australia and large parts of Central Australia are highly vulnerable to impacts of extreme weather.
