Macroalgae

Melinda is a research scientist for the NSW Marine Parks Authority on the far south coast of NSW. Melinda’s ARC research on dispersal and gene flow in temperate kelps has shown that patterns are specific to different oceanic currents throughout Australia and her work has important implications for conservation and management of these important subtidal habitats. Melinda has also done postdoctoral research in the USA on the potential impact of climate change on intertidal habitat-forming macroalgae.
