Marine Ecology

Coastal regions in the tropics support a disproportionate percentage of the world’s human population.  Associated activities, such as infrastructure development, increased fishing pressure and habitat degradation have wide-ranging implications in terms of coastal ecosystem health.

James Cook University in Singapore has an active research program examining the ecology of a variety of tropical coastal marine organisms, from sharks to snails. Through collaboration with a broad range of stakeholders our aim is to conduct research that makes a difference, informing ecosystem management and conservation in the tropics.
