  • 2016 Subtidal Ecological Survey of Tauranga Harbour and development of benthic health models

    Clark, Dana; Taiapa, Caine; Sinner, Jim; Taikato, Vanessa; Culliford, David; Battershill, Christopher N.; Ellis, Joanne I.; Hewitt, Judi E.; Gower, Fiona; Borges, Hugo; Patterson, Murray (Massey University, 2018)
    This report summarises the results of biological and physical data collected from a broad-scale subtidal survey of Tauranga Harbour conducted between March and May 2016. The survey was designed to understand more fully the ...
  • Communicating the value of marine conservation using an ecosystem service matrix approach

    Geange, Shane; Townsend, Michael; Clark, Dana; Ellis, Joanne I.; Lohrer, Andrew M. (Elsevier Science BV, 2019)
    Matrix approaches are useful for linking ecosystem services to habitats that underpin their delivery. Matrix applications in marine ecosystem services research have been primarily qualitative, focusing on 'habitat presence' ...
  • Detecting anthropogenic impacts on estuarine benthic communities

    Clark, Dana (The University of Waikato, 2021)
    Our estuaries, and the benefits that we derive from them, are threatened by the cumulative effects of interacting stressors. Separating the impacts of anthropogenic stressors from natural variability in the marine environment ...
  • Ecological Survey of Tauranga Harbour

    Ellis, Joanne I.; Clark, Dana; Hewitt, Judi E.; Taiapa, Caine; Sinner, Jim; Patterson, Murray; Hardy, Derrylea; Park, Stephen; Gardner, Bruce; Morrison, Alice; Culliford, David; Battershill, Christopher N.; Hancock, Nicole; Hale, Lydia; Asher, Rod; Gower, Fiona; Brown, Erin; McCallion, Aaron (Cawthron Institute, 2017)
    This report summarises the results of biological and physical data collected from a broad scale intertidal survey of Tauranga Harbour conducted between December 2011 and February 2012. The survey was designed to understand ...
  • Influence of land-derived stressors and environmental variability on compositional turnover and diversity of estuarine benthic communities

    Clark, Dana; Stephenson, Fabrice; Hewitt, Judi E.; Ellis, Joanne I.; Zaiko, Anastasija; Berthelsen, Anna; Bulmer, Richard H.; Pilditch, Conrad A. (Inter-Research Science Center, 2021)
    It can be challenging to differentiate community changes caused by human activities from the influence of natural background variability. Using gradient forest analysis, we explored the relative importance of environmental ...
