    Research Activities

    Details of research projects can be found at https://alistairpoore.org/

    My research focuses on the ecology and evolution of interactions among marine organisms, in particular benthic invertebrates and algae. My current research projects involve:

    • the impacts of herbivores on plant communities
    • the ecology and evolution of host choice in marine herbivores
    • human impacts to coastal marine ecosystems
    • adaptation of marine organisms to environmental stress
    • use of citizen science data for biodiversity monitoring
