the physiological response of oysters to climate change |
change, particularly ocean acidification with synergistic temperature stressors,
will have significant impacts on the physiology of the ecollogically and economically
significant oyster species, the Sydney rock and Pacific oysters. The results of
this study provide an estimate of the resilience of oyster species to climate
change of endemic (S. glomerata) compared to introduced (C. gigas)
species. A key question raised in most recent research, as climate change has
been predicted to cause a high loss of many marine endemic organisms. This investigation
may assist in decision making processes within the aquaculture industry for profitable
cultivation and environmental management decisions.
I am honoured to have received the award of 'Best Young Researcher' for my poster
at the Fourth International Oyster Symposium in Tasmania earlier this month. At
the same time I am excited to be the recipient of this award. My supervisors Wayne
O'Connor, Pauline Ross and Laura Parker must be thanked for their dedication and
support of the study. This study was possible with thanks to NSW Industry and
Investment, the University of Western Sydney, and the National Climate Change
Adaptation Research Facility. I am very grateful to the World Oyster Society and
enthusiastic about the future of the oyster industry.
