Inaugural Professorial Lecture - Professor Miles Lamare

Marine Larvae and Ocean Change: little things mean a lot

About Professor Miles Lamare's research

Miles is a marine biologist with extensive research on the ecology of marine invertebrates, and a special interest in sea stars and sea urchins. His research has been undertaken on species from the Tropics to the Poles, and in both hemispheres. Recently, Miles has examined the outcomes of climate change on marine species, including the impacts of ozone loss in polar regions, ocean warming and acidification.

His present research includes examining responses to environmental change in coral reef species in Papua New Guinea and Australia, invasive sea urchins in New Zealand, adaptive potential in Antarctic sea stars to warming oceans, and the use of environmental DNA to track sea star outbreaks. Miles is presently principal investigator in a six-year New Zealand Antarctic Science Platform programme that will commence in 2020 to examine changes in the Ross Sea, and is an associate investigator on Marsden-funded, ground-breaking research into the molecular mechanisms of regeneration in sea squirts.

This lecture will be followed with light refreshments, tea, coffee & juice.
