New study uncovers the how the pink sea fan maintains connectivity

A new study led by Dr Kirsty Macleod explores the reliance of pink sea fan on rare, long-distance dispersal events to maintain connectivity across huge oceanic distances. Read more about the study in the journal Evolutionary Applications...

New modelling study suggests ranges of British soft coral species is set to expand northwards with global warming

New research from the MEEG team suggests that under RCP 8.5 climate projections, the current ranges of several iconic soft coral species around the UK are set to move northwards as sea temperatures rise towards the end of the 21st century.

Trout of the Red River - a poetic perspective

Working alongside John W. Clarke from the English Department - John's work offers a new perspective on our Red River metal-tolerant trout:

Falmouth harbour 'at risk' algae is unique say Exeter scientists

Red algae growing in Cornwall's Fal Estuary is genetically unique, new research shows.

New study of the importance of small coastal streams for sea trout in southwest England

This southwest of England is characterized by many small coastal streams with a few larger river catchments. Nonetheless, despite their small size, many of these streams are home to genetically distinct populations of trout/sea trout. At a regional level, genetic structuring of contemporary trout populations in the region has been influenced by a combination of events, including the last Ice Age and also more recent human activities over the last millennium.
