Meet our 2021 L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Fellow, Dr Kirsty Nash of @UTAS_, who’s passionate about answering the question of what we should know about nutrient profiles in response to climate change 🔬
In the latest @ReefFunctionHub paper @SB_Tebbett tracked coral loss, recovery and recruitment across the same 349 quadrats spread around Lizard Island from immediately before mass bleaching in 2016 until January 2021, revealing marked spatial patchiness in benthic dynamics [1/6]
SEM image: cross section of a black coral (genus Asteriopathes). Took more hours than I'd like to admit, but well worth it! This specimen is one of over 30 in my latest manuscript on black corals from the Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea @MTQ_Townsville#ProjectDIGQM@CoralCoE
We are seeking an Assistant Director to join our Science for Management section. This position will broker relationships between the Authority and the science community, to support the health and resilience of the #GreatBarrierReef. Applications 7/12/21: bit.ly/3CPCyvT
#Coral spawning research being conducted by @mhana24 at @JCUOIRS this week. Hanaka is investigating species boundaries through cross breeding trials across different species as part of her PhD at @CoralCoE
🎉Congratulations to our @CoralCoE’s Deborah Burn for receiving an Inspirational Leader Award at the @jcu International Gala for her outstanding service to the student community. We’re proud of you Debs!
As I write my last chapter (and describe this below new species), I realize the importance of going with my gut. I remember internally debating if this #blackcoral was worth collecting, which turned out to be an undescribed species. @SchmidtOcean@MTQ_Townsville@CoralCoE
