On Tuesday, October 4, from 6-7 PM PST, Kelp Kulture will be hosting their seminar series on climate change, environmental policy, and biotechnology, featuring Dr. Cayne Layton of University of Tasmania, Australia, discussing “Kelp Restoration on Australia’s Southern Reef”.
Cayne completed his PhD at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies, researching the population and community ecology of Ecklonia radiata kelp forests. This project centered around several long-term field experiments and involved over 400 hours of diving. Cayne’s passion for temperate reef ecology and scientific diving brought him to the University of Tasmania from the Australian National University, where he completed his bachelor’s degree in science with honours (majoring in Zoology and Ecology & Evolution) and worked as a research assistant.
Cayne’s research actively engages with a variety of partners, including NGOs, Aboriginal organisations, industry, and government. He is a member of the NESP Marine Biodiversity Hub, and the Hidden Deserts, Marine Forests, and OzFish citizen science initiatives.
