Marine sponges as biomonitors in Darwin Harbour
Projects in this theme
Darwin Harbour is one of Australia's largest deep-water harbours. Urbanisation and industrialisation have lead increased loads of nutrients metals and sediments into the harbour. This proposal aims to address whether metal bioaccumulation in sponges extends over a greater range of sponges and locations in Darwin Harbour and whether this is in response to environmental pressure or a normal physiological process.
