  • Differences in Intertidal Microbial Assemblages on Urban Structures and Natural Rocky Reef

    Tan, Elisa L.-Y.; Mayer-Pinto, Mariana; Johnston, Emma L.; Dafforn, Katherine A. (2015)
    Projects: ARC | Linkage Projects - Grant ID: LP140100753 (LP140100753)
    Global seascapes are increasingly modified to support high levels of human activity in the coastal zone. Modifications include the addition of defense structures and boating infrastructure, such as seawalls and marinas that replace natural habitats. Artificial structures support different macrofaunal communities to those found on natural rocky shores; however, little is known about differences in microbial community structure or function in urban seascapes. Understanding how artificial constr...

    Coastal urbanisation affects microbial communities on a dominant marine holobiont

    Marzinelli, Ezequiel M.; Qiu, Zhiguang; Dafforn, Katherine A.; Johnston, Emma L.; Steinberg, Peter D.; Mayer-Pinto, Mariana (2018)
    Projects: ARC | Discovery Projects - Grant ID: DP140102776 (DP140102776), ARC | Linkage Projects - Grant ID: LP140100753 (LP140100753)
    Host-associated microbial communities play a fundamental role in the life of eukaryotic hosts. It is increasingly argued that hosts and their microbiota must be studied together as 'holobionts' to better understand the effects of environmental stressors on host functioning. Disruptions of host–microbiota interactions by environmental stressors can negatively affect host performance and survival. Substantial ecological impacts are likely when the affected hosts are habitat-forming species (e.g...

    Effects of ocean sprawl on ecological connectivity: impacts and solutions

    © 2017 The Authors The growing number of artificial structures in estuarine, coastal and marine environments is causing “ocean sprawl”. Artificial structures do not only modify marine and coastal ecosystems at the sites of their placement, but may also produce larger-scale impacts through their alteration of ecological connectivity - the movement of organisms, materials and energy between habitat units within seascapes. Despite the growing awareness of the capacity of ocean sprawl to influenc...

    Identifying the consequences of ocean sprawl for sedimentary habitats

    Heery, Eliza C.; Bishop, Melanie J.; Critchley, Lincoln P.; Bugnot, Ana B.; Airoldi, Laura; Mayer-Pinto, Mariana; Sheehan, Emma V.; Coleman, Ross A.; Loke, Lynette H.L.; Johnston, Emma L.; Komyakova, Valeriya; Morris, Rebecca L.; Strain, Elisabeth M.A.; Naylor, Larissa A.; Dafforn, Katherine A.

    Extensive development and construction in marine and coastal systems is driving a phenomenon known as “ocean sprawl”. Ocean sprawl removes or transforms marine habitats through the addition of artificial structures and some of the most significant impacts are occurring in sedimentary environments. Marine sediments have substantial social, ecological, and economic value, as they are rich in biodiversity, crucial to fisheries productivity, and major sites of nutrient transformation. Yet the imp...
