Biography

Liz is an evolutionary biologist. Her research focuses on patterns of genetic diversity and connectivity at different spatial scales in temperate Australian seagrasses (Posidonia spp.), from clonal diversity, mating systems, population genetics, long distance dispersal and recruitment. Genetic patterns are interpreted using a multidisciplinary approach – oceanography, regional hydrodynamic spatial modelling, and life history traits (pollen and seed dispersal and recruitment), with implication for seagrass restoration. Her current research focuses on understanding genomic diversity, gene expression and adaptation in changing marine environmental conditions for Shark Bay’s large temperate seagrasses.
