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!
Oliver Jewell Joins the Sequeira Lab as a Postdoc
Oliver has joined the Sequeira Lab from the Harry Butler Institute, Murdoch University, where he has recently submitted his PhD thesis for examination. Oliver specialises in the tagging and tracking of marine megafauna, particularly large sharks. His recent work involved the collection and analysis of high-resolution bio-logging data from the movements of white sharks across the world.
SequeiraLab’s last outing was at the Rollerdrome!
We work hard at the SequeiraLab. But we also play hard! 🙂
Adrianne Hortle joins the Sequeira Lab as MSc student!
Adrianne Hortle has joined the Sequeira lab to undertake an interdisciplinary project within the Integrated Coastal Analyses and Sensor Technology (ICoAST) and Gathaagudu Animal Tracking (GAT) projects linking remote sensing seagrass mapping and turtle observations in Shark Bay (Gathaagudu), Western Australia.
New paper reveals that co-occurring sharks follow specific movement strategies that may help support their co-existence!
The movement patterns of sympatric apex predatory sharks has just been published in Ecography: 'Comprehensive analytical approaches reveal species-specific search strategies in sympatric apex predatory sharks'.
Ben D’Antonio joins the Sequeira Lab as PhD student
Ben D’Antonio has joined the Sequeira lab to undertake an exciting project investigating the vertical and horizontal movements of apex predators at two World Heritage sites in Western Australia. Ben’s PhD work will be embedded in the Gathaagudu Animal Tracking (GAT) ...
New paper on the first insights into whale shark movements in northern Arabian Sea!
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.
We have satellite-tagged our first turtle for the Gathaagudu Animal Tracking (GAT) Project!
The Sequeira Lab is excited to announce that we have recently returned from our first field trip to Shark Bay or “Gathaagudu” as it is called by the Malgana Peoples, the traditional owners of this region in Western Australia.
Our recent standardisation paper makes cover of Methods in Ecology and Evolution!
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.
Mike Taylor has done a fantastic PhD proposal presentation!
Mike Taylor has presented his PhD Proposal, one of the first major milestones of his PhD. Feedback that he receives on his project looking at grazing marine megafauna will help shape the rest of his PhD.
