Seaweed's carbon capturing potential

Scientists from UTS C3 and Deakin University have carried out the first investigation of how a diverse range of coastal plants and seaweed (macroalgae) can contribute to "blue carbon" stocks
A collaboration between UTS:C3 and CSIRO have resulted in the launch of a new research tool to investigate the complex scientific questions around seagrass biology and physiology
There are great hopes for the potential of coastal plants and seaweeds to store carbon and help counter the effects of climate change and a new study involving C3 research is backing that potential
The molecule that causes the distinct smell of the sea is being investigated by C3 PhD candidate Stephanie Gardner.
A chance discovery puts a new perspective on the ecology of the symbiotic microalgae that drive coral reef formation.
