WAMSI 2 - Kimberley Node - Project 1.1.3 Ecological Connectivity


Reproduction and recruitment underlie the maintenance of biological communities. For most marine organisms the ocean environment provides the potential for widespread dispersal of organisms during various life cycle stages via currents, tides and wind. Within the Kimberley region, key biological communities have a range of reproductive modes. Under... more

About this Project

WAMSI-Kim 1.1.3 Ecological connectivity


The project employed genomic tools and microchemistry to provide the first comprenhensive measurements of the distances moved by marine organisms between Kimberley reefs, and how frequently organisms move between the Kimberley and other regions (e.g. offshore shoals, the Pilbara)
