  • Edge Effects along a Seagrass Margin Result in an Increased Grazing Risk on Posidonia australis Transplants

    Statton, John; Gustin-Craig, Samuel; Dixon, Kingsley W.; Kendrick, Gary A. (2015)
    Projects: ARC | Linkage Projects - Grant ID: LP130100155 (LP130100155)
    A key issue in habitat restoration are the changes in ecological processes that occur when fragments of habitat are lost, resulting in the persistence of habitat-degraded margins. Margins often create or enhance opportunities for negative plant-herbivore interactions, preventing natural or assisted re-establishment of native vegetation into the degraded area. However, at some distance from the habitat margin these negative interactions may relax. Here, we posit that the intensity of species i...

    Upgrading Marine Ecosystem Restoration Using Ecological‐Social Concepts

    Abelson, Avigdor; Halpern, Benjamin S.; Reed, Daniel C.; Orth, Robert J.; Kendrick, Gary A.; Beck, Michael W.; Belmaker, Jonathan; Krause, Gesche; Edgar, Graham J.; Airoldi, Laura; Brokovich, Eran; France, Robert; Shashar, Nadav; de Blaeij, Arianne; Stambler, Noga;... (2015)
    Projects: ARC | Linkage Projects - Grant ID: LP130100155 (LP130100155)
    Conservation and environmental management are principal countermeasures to the degradation of marine ecosystems and their services. However, in many cases, current practices are insufficient to reverse ecosystem declines. We suggest that restoration ecology, the science underlying the concepts and tools needed to restore ecosystems, must be recognized as an integral element for marine conservation and environmental management. Marine restoration ecology is a young scientific discipline, often...

    Identifying critical recruitment bottlenecks limiting seedling establishment in a degraded seagrass ecosystem

    Statton, John; Montoya, Leonardo R.; Orth, Robert J.; Dixon, Kingsley W.; Kendrick, Gary A. (2017)
    Projects: ARC | Linkage Projects - Grant ID: LP130100155 (LP130100155)
    Identifying early life-stage transitions limiting seagrass recruitment could improve our ability to target demographic processes most responsive to management. Here we determine the magnitude of life-stage transitions along gradients in physical disturbance limiting seedling establishment for the marine angiosperm, Posidonia australis. Transition matrix models and sensitivity analyses were used to identify which transitions were critical for successful seedling establishment during the first ...

    Belowground stressors and long-term seagrass declines in a historically degraded seagrass ecosystem after improved water quality

    Fraser, Matthew W.; Kendrick, Gary A. (2017)
    Projects: ARC | Linkage Projects - Grant ID: LP130100155 (LP130100155)
    Continued seagrass declines in ecosystems with improved water quality may be driven by sediment stressors. One of the most cited examples of a seagrass ecosystem with declines is Cockburn Sound, Western Australia, where 75% of seagrasses (2169 ha) were lost in the 1960s–1980s due to poor water quality. Water quality has subsequently improved in Cockburn Sound, yet shoot density declines continue in some areas. Here, we investigated if sediment stressors (sulfide intrusion and heavy metals) co...

    Accelerating Tropicalization and the Transformation of Temperate Seagrass Meadows

    Hyndes, Glenn A.; Heck, Kenneth L.; Vergés, Adriana; Harvey, Euan S.; Kendrick, Gary A.; Lavery, Paul S.; McMahon, Kathryn; Orth, Robert J.; Pearce, Alan; Vanderklift, Mathew; Wernberg, Thomas; Whiting, Scott; Wilson, Shaun (2016)
    Projects: ARC | Linkage Projects - Grant ID: LP130100155 (LP130100155)
    Abstract Climate-driven changes are altering production and functioning of biotic assemblages in terrestrial and aquatic environments. In temperate coastal waters, rising sea temperatures, warm water anomalies and poleward shifts in the distribution of tropical herbivores have had a detrimental effect on algal forests. We develop generalized scenarios of this form of tropicalization and its potential effects on the structure and functioning of globally significant and threatened seagrass ecos...

    Impact of mooring activities on carbon stocks in seagrass meadows

    Serrano, Oscar; Ruhon, R.; Lavery, Paul S.; Kendrick, Gary A.; Hickey, Sharyn; Masqué, Pere; Arias-Ortiz, Ariane; Ateven, A.; Duarte, Carlos M. (2016)
    Projects: ARC | Linkage Projects - Grant ID: LP130100155 (LP130100155)
    Unidad de excelencia María de Maeztu MdM-2015-0552 Boating activities are one of the causes that threaten seagrass meadows and the ecosystem services they provide. Mechanical destruction of seagrass habitats may also trigger the erosion of sedimentary organic carbon (Corg) stocks, which may contribute to increasing atmospheric CO2. This study presents the first estimates of loss of Corg stocks in seagrass meadows due to mooring activities in Rottnest Island, Western Australia. Sediment cor...

    Low Light Availability Alters Root Exudation and Reduces Putative Beneficial Microorganisms in Seagrass Roots

    Martin, Belinda C.; Gleeson, Deirdre; Statton, John; Siebers, Andre R.; Grierson, Pauline; Ryan, Megan H.; Kendrick, Gary A. (2018)
    Projects: ARC | Future Fellowships - Grant ID: FT140100103 (FT140100103), ARC | Linkage Projects - Grant ID: LP130100155 (LP130100155)
    Seagrass roots host a diverse microbiome that is critical for plant growth and health. Composition of microbial communities can be regulated in part by root exudates, but the specifics of these interactions in seagrass rhizospheres are still largely unknown. As light availability controls primary productivity, reduced light may impact root exudation and consequently the composition of the root microbiome. Hence, we analyzed the influence of light availability on root exudation and community s...
