Species traits and climate velocity explain geographic range shifts in an ocean-warming hotspot.
It is found that small-ranging species are in double jeopardy, with limited ability to escape warming and greater intrinsic vulnerability to stochastic disturbances, and independent support for the hypothesis that species with narrow latitudinal ranges are limited by factors other than climate.
Defining and observing stages of climate-mediated range shifts in marine systems
This work focuses on warming-related range shifts in marine systems to describe extensions and contractions as stages, and evaluates the utility of trait-based risk (invasion) and vulnerability (extinction) frameworks for application in a range shift context and finds inadequacies.
Climate-change induced tropicalisation of marine communities in Western Australia
A Dynamic Bioclimate Envelope Model is used to project range shift of exploited marine fishes and invertebrates in Western Australia and shows that under the SRES (Special Report for Emission Scenarios) A1B scenario, the median rate of distribution shift is around 19 km decade–1 towards higher latitudes and 9 m deeper decade-1 by 2055 relative to 2005.
Larval fish assemblages and particle back-tracking define latitudinal and cross-shelf variability in an eastern Indian Ocean boundary current
The study has shown that, in the alongshore dominated Leeuwin Current system, cross-shelf transport can be similarly important in dispersal processes.
Contribution of the Karimata Strait transport to the Indonesian Throughflow as seen from a data assimilation model
Abstract A particle-tracking experiment based on Bluelink ReANalysis (BRAN) is designed to explore the contribution of a branch of the South China Sea Throughflow, the Karimata Strait (KS) transport,
Retention and dispersal of shelf waters influenced by interactions of ocean boundary current and coastal geography
Retention and dispersal of shelf waters under the influence of ocean boundary currents is crucial to recruitment processes of many coastal species. In this study, a Lagrangian particle tracking
Modelling the potential transport of tropical fish larvae in the Leeuwin Current
Abstract Application of an individual-based particle tracking model to the migration of tropical fish larvae along the continental shelf between the Houtman Abrolhos Islands and Rottnest Island
Quantitative Quality Control (QC) procedures for the Australian National reference stations: Sensor data
The National Reference Station (NRS) network, part of Australia's Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS), is designed to provide the baseline multi decadal time series required to understand how
Role of winds and tides in timing of beach strandings, occurrence, and significance of swarms of the jellyfish Crambione mastigophora Mass 1903 (Scyphozoa: Rhizostomeae: Catostylidae) in
Very large swarms of the red jellyfish Crambione mastigophora in north-western Australia disrupt swimming on tourist beaches causing economic impacts. In October 2012, jellyfish stranding on Cable
