The SequeiraLab is kicking off the New Year with some exciting news! At the end of 2021 Lucy Arrowsmith and Hannah Calich presented their PhD completion seminars at the UWA Indian Ocean Marine Research Centre and are now preparing their thesis submission.
Both Sequeira Lab's masters students Jessica Pearce and Adrianne Hortle have recently submitted their final theses! This marks the final step in the completion of their respective master's degrees.
The SequeiraLab is happy to announce that the research paper 'Water temperature is a key driver of horizontal and vertical movements of an ocean giant, the whale shark (Rhincondon typus)' led by Lucy Arrowsmith and co-authored by Ana Sequeira, Charitha Pattiaratchi and Mark Meekan, has just been published in the journal Marine Ecology Progress Series!
Oliver has joined the Sequeira Lab from the Harry Butler Institute, Murdoch University, where he has recently submitted his PhD thesis for examination. Oliver specialises in the tagging and tracking of marine megafauna, particularly large sharks. His recent work involved the collection and analysis of high-resolution bio-logging data from the movements of white sharks across the world.
We work hard at the SequeiraLab. But we also play hard! 🙂
Adrianne Hortle has joined the Sequeira lab to undertake an interdisciplinary project within the Integrated Coastal Analyses and Sensor Technology (ICoAST) and Gathaagudu Animal Tracking (GAT) projects linking remote sensing seagrass mapping and turtle observations in Shark Bay (Gathaagudu), Western Australia.
The movement patterns of sympatric apex predatory sharks has just been published in Ecography: 'Comprehensive analytical approaches reveal species-specific search strategies in sympatric apex predatory sharks'.
Ben D’Antonio has joined the Sequeira lab to undertake an exciting project investigating the vertical and horizontal movements of apex predators at two World Heritage sites in Western Australia. Ben’s PhD work will be embedded in the Gathaagudu Animal Tracking (GAT) ...
We are happy to announce that research led by Lucy Arrowsmith has been published in Frontiers in Marine Science! This research, ‘First Insights into the Horizontal Movements of Whale Sharks (Rhincodon typus) in the Northern Arabian Sea,’ shows the first data of whale sharks tagged in the northern Arabian Sea off the western coast of the Indian state of Gujarat.
The Sequeira Lab is excited to announce that we have recently returned from our first field trip to Shark Bay or “Gathaagudu” as it is called by the Malgana Peoples, the traditional owners of this region in Western Australia.
