This is the start of the anniversary year with lots of events and festivities.
Return of the native oyster facilitated by the invasive Pacific Oyster? Our new paper that just came out today in Marine Biology research suggests so: Underwater discovery oyster bed reveals native oyster mysteries The flat [ Here we review the diverse ways in which incorporating inexpensive UAVs may reduce costs and field time while improving safety and data quality and quantity over existing methods for studies [ Emerging from the 12th International Seagrass Biology Workshop, held in Octoberhas been the view that grazing marine megafauna may play a useful role in helping to identify previously unknown seagrass habitats.
Here we describe this concept, showing how detailed information on the distribution [ During my PhD fieldwork in East Kalimantan I had the opportunity to collaborate with a multidisciplinairy team of hydrologists, physical geologists, modelers, coral reef biologists to study this.
Looking forward to work here and expand my research network! More on this new research soon!
A short update to announce that 3 new co-authored papers have been accepted this month! So do you want to know why use FastlocGPS? Seagrass ecosystem trajectory depends on the relative timescales of resistance, [ It will involve field experiments and a regional survey in the Caribbean and development of a new tools for global [ What fuels the Wadden Sea foodweb?
What fuels the Wadden Sea food web? The answer is surprising, and has been published last month in Ecology. However, seagrasses are essential components of coastal zones due to their extremely high productivity and the high biodiversity they support.
So time for more research! Food web indicators for conservation succes Our new paper is online available from today in Biological Conservation: The highlights of this paper: Shellfish reefs strongly modify habitat conditions in soft-sediment ecosystems. These non-trophic interactions strongly alter community and food web structure.
Simple food web metrics captured these changes; classic community biodiversity metrics did not. Food web metrics are a useful [ I currently have two experiments running, one on Zeelandia beach on the Windward side of the island, and the second on [ We aimed to collect data to analyse the habitat use and population connectivity of green and hawksbill turtles as part of a larger NWO research program encompassing the 6 Dutch Caribbean Islands.
Equipped with a turtle box, satellite transmitters, our red [ Free-diver Laurent volunteering in St. Eustatius During our fieldwork on St. Laurent helped as a volunteer to catch turtles. He also made some really nice video footage while free diving. You just have to listen to the Project Leader, and you have to be available anytime, [ Experimental nest temperature assessments will show.
Not only in seagrass ecosystems: In this paper we show that herbivores provide strong top-down regulation on freshwater macrophytes and seagrasses.
Their effects are [ How to keep seagrass as happy as a clam? Today 2 papers of our group were published online!
This works through facilitation rather than trophic interactions [ She also provides practical info on her previous fieldwork site: Derawan in East-KalimantanIndonesia marjolijn.Our new paper that just came out today in Marine Biology research suggests so: Press release by Bureau Waardenburg/WUR below: And – in Dutch – an interview by NPO radio 1, science program Focus, about questions that leave you awake at night, broadcasted between am.
