Maths takes you places… Identifying areas of ecological significance in the Antarctic

Topics/Keywords: Maths of Planet Earth, MPE

For Dr Sophie Bestley, a PhD in Quantitative Marine Science (QMS) on the migrations and feeding patterns of Southern Bluefin Tuna has led to highly sought – after jobs in Canada and France.

Now working on elephant seals, albatross, penguins and krill – identifying ‘hotspots’ or areas of high ecological significance in the Southern Ocean and Antarctic marine environments – Dr Bestley’s work could be used to select marine reserves locations.


This poster was produced by AMSI in collaboration with the University of Tasmania’s specialist Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies.
