PhD student Mrs Charlie Phelps from Edith Cowan University is studying the effects of bacteria, increasing temperature and kelp-eating organisms (herbivory) on the ecologically-important kelp, Ecklonia radiata. This research has been made possible thanks to the Max Day Environmental Science Fellowship Award. Ms Phelps is joint winner of the 2018 Award.
Your gift today to support this and other Academy awards will provide life-changing opportunities for young scientists and help us to forge a future that transforms our understanding of ourselves, our world and our universe.
