Marine Biodiversity Hub researcher Barry Bruce of CSIRO has been awarded the 2016 Australian Marine Sciences Association (AMSA) Jubilee Award for outstanding contribution to marine research.
Indigenous panellists from Australia and New Zealand will meet in Wellington, New Zealand, on Monday 4 July to consider ways for the marine science and Indigenous communities to engage more effectively in research partnerships.
Australia once had extensive shellfish reefs across its coastlines, but they are now largely destroyed and NESP Marine Biodiversity Hub researchers from James Cook University (JCU) and The Nature Conservancy (TNC) have identified what needs to be done to repair and conserve them.
Patterns of biodiversity in the deep ocean are fundamentally different from those that govern species richness in shallower waters or on land, according to a paper published by Marine Biodiversity Hub researchers in the journal Nature.
Soon after starting as data manager with the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS), Emma Flukes experienced the proud moment of loading her own data onto the Australian Ocean Data Network (AODN).

Fishers who are lucky enough to experience a close encounter with one of our protected sawfish or river shark species are meeting with some of the most interesting inhabitants of our northern waterways.
In a world where fish biodiversity is on the decline, highly vulnerable species have been given a major boost after scientists identified why some species are absent from reefs in the Indian and Pacific oceans. Incorporating this knowledge into conservation strategies will help to reduce human impact on species loss.

A new study by University of Tasmania researchers and international collaborators has found that a key element of future changes in the distribution of marine biodiversity resulting from ocean warming is not as closely related to local warming rates as previously assumed.
Published today in the prestigious international journal Nature, the research shows that the proportion of fish and invertebrate species expected to disappear from ...
Australia’s Environment Minister, the Hon Greg Hunt MP, joined University of Tasmania scientists and volunteer divers on a Reef Life Survey at Tinderbox Marine Reserve south of Hobart today.
After the dive, the Minister joined UTAS Vice Chancellor, Professor Peter Rathjen, at Hobart’s Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies to launch the Marine Biodiversity Hub, one of six hubs funded under the National Environmental Science Programme (NESP).
The NESP is a six-...
