Its mostly about seagrasses...
We are a diverse group of individuals who all share a great love of nature and the marine environment, in particular. Our research expertise and interests are also diverse, which allows us to work across multiple disciplines and create truly collaborative projects and outcomes. Our focus has been largely on benthic habitat-forming species including macroalgae, corals and particularly seagrasses.
