The resilience of marine ecosystems and fisheries to climate change: exploring adaptation strategies (2010–2013)

Australia is vulnerable to climate change because of our unique marine biodiversity and the significant economic wealth generated from our oceans. Currently, the science needed to adapt to biological impacts of climate change lags far behind our knowledge of physical changes. This Future Fellowship will use a state-of-the-art ecosystem model forced by a global climate model to investigate potential climate change impacts on marine biodiversity and fisheries, and to explore trade-offs and adaptation strategies. This will enable evaluation of management strategies that can be applied to protect biodiversity, increase marine ecosystem resilience, and provide sustained economic benefit for Australia under climate change.'',
