Bronwyn Gillanders talks marine organisms - Research Tuesdays: Adelaide University, The Braggs lecture theatre, Tuesday 25 August, 5.30–6.30pm
The fascinating ecological and environmental insights being revealed by marine organisms’ hard body parts.
Although marine waters present a challenging research environment, the remarkable data obtained there by the University of Adelaide’s Professor Bronwyn Gillanders and her team has proven well worth the effort. Studying the hard structures of marine organisms, such as teeth and bones, the team has successfully used the information gained to cast light on important ecological and environmental questions.
Professor Bronwyn Gillanders is Deputy Director of the Environment Institute at the University of Adelaide. She completed her PhD in Biological Sciences at the University of Sydney, and has worked on projects in freshwater, estuarine and marine waters. She moved to the University of Adelaide in 2001.
