We are excited to report that Charlotte Birkmanis has been awarded the 2020 Student International Travel Scholarship from the Australian Society of Fish Biology. This merit-based scholarship supports a researcher to present their work at an international conference.
Dr Ana Sequeira and Dr Malcolm O’Toole have led a newly published paper on tracking marine animals published in the journal Methods in Ecology and Evolution. The study Quantifying effects of tracking data bias on species distribution models used simulation data emulating the movement of marine predators to test the effects of different types of tracking data when developing species distribution models.
Want to learn about whale sharks and what influences the movements of this charismatic megafauna? Here is an opportunity to do so! Join Lucy Arrowsmith as she shares her PhD research and takes us into the world of this ocean giant, revealing details of their life below the surface.
The Sequeira Lab went on our first lab outing of 2020! We are fortunate in Western Australia to have life 'almost' back to normal now (with the due precautions). So, what better way to get out pent up pandemic frustration than to throw some large axes at a target?
Takahiro Shimada has just joined the Sequeira Lab! Taka has been heavily involved in research and conservation of sea turtles for the last 14 years.
Our Master’s student Jessica Pearce participated in the recent video abstract competition held by Pacific Bioscience (PacBio) , on behalf of UWA Oceans Institute and DNA Zoo Australia.
Michael Taylor has joined the Sequeira lab to undertake an exciting project investigating movement, interactions, and habitat use of Shark Bay’s iconic megafauna.
Today, Wednesday 22nd July at 6 pm AWST (11 am GMT), Ana and Nuno Queiroz (CIBIO, Universidade do Porto) with be having a live chat about their global collaborations to unravel marine megafauna movement.
Our new research on ‘Future Distribution of Suitable Habitat for Pelagic Sharks in Australia Under Climate Change Models’ has just been published in Frontiers in Marine Science. In this study led by Charlotte Birkmanis, we predicted where pelagic sharks are likely to occur in Australian waters under future sea temperatures.
4-May-2020 (written by Jessica Pearce) Jessica Pearce has joined the Sequeira Lab to do her Masters Degree investigating shark evolution using novel genomic technologies in collaboration with Dr Matthew Fraser from UWA Oceans Institute and Assoc Prof Parwinder Kaur, Director of DNA Zoo Australia. Jessica will be sequencing the tiger shark genome and conducting a …
