The SequeiraLab is kicking off the New Year with some exciting news! At the end of 2021 Lucy Arrowsmith and Hannah Calich presented their PhD completion seminars at the UWA Indian Ocean Marine Research Centre and are now preparing their thesis submission.
The SequeiraLab is happy to announce that the research paper 'Water temperature is a key driver of horizontal and vertical movements of an ocean giant, the whale shark (Rhincondon typus)' led by Lucy Arrowsmith and co-authored by Ana Sequeira, Charitha Pattiaratchi and Mark Meekan, has just been published in the journal Marine Ecology Progress Series!
We are happy to announce that research led by Lucy Arrowsmith has been published in Frontiers in Marine Science! This research, ‘First Insights into the Horizontal Movements of Whale Sharks (Rhincodon typus) in the Northern Arabian Sea,’ shows the first data of whale sharks tagged in the northern Arabian Sea off the western coast of the Indian state of Gujarat.
SequeiraLab is excited to announce that our recent publication led by Ana Sequeira on a standardisation framework for biologging data has made the cover of Methods in Ecology and Evolution! The collaborative project involved more than 40 contributors, including key members of IMOS, AODN, ATN, ONR and OTN, whom came together at the Marine Megafauna Task Team (MMTT) workshop during the OceansOBS'19 conference in Hawaii.
Want to learn about whale sharks and what influences the movements of this charismatic megafauna? Here is an opportunity to do so! Join Lucy Arrowsmith as she shares her PhD research and takes us into the world of this ocean giant, revealing details of their life below the surface.
