Dr Bugnot is studying the ecology of remnant oyster reefs in order to understand its role in Australian estuarine ecosystems.
Specifically interested in how oyster reefs and their biodiversity influence the ecological functions of the reefs themselves and their surrounding sediments. This new knowledge is informing oyster reefs management and current oyster restoration strategies in Australia.
This project is funded by an ARC Linkage grant in collaboration with The Nature Conservancy and the Department of Primary Industries of NSW.
