The research group of Dr Eric A Treml, spatial marine ecologist in the School of Life and Environmental Sciences at the Centre for Marine, Fisheries and Aquaculture Sciences (MFAS), Deakin University, Australia. Our broad research interests are in marine ecology, fisheries science, and conservation, specifically in understanding the causes and consequences of population connectivity and the implications for marine management.
Our research aligns under three themes:
I. Biophysics: Understanding the biological and physical drivers of marine population connectivity and persistence.
II. Biodiversity: Investigating how connectivity and the environment contribute to the biodiversity patterns (genetic to community levels).
III. Management: Developing ecologically and spatially informed management strategies to protect ecological integrity and ensure sustainable fisheries.
