Tech Talk 7: Understanding Marine Connectivity

Why are some marine species found in one place but not another?

Hydrodynamic forces such as currents and waves strongly influence how and where marine plants and animals are distributed and how different populations are connected in space and time.

Understanding this distribution through predictive modelling allows us to manage marine habitats better, especially in relation to human activities. This helps us protect our marine environments for the future.
