Studies conducted by it's researchers in NW Australia since 1990 have yielded new information regarding the behaviours and migratory characteristics of humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) off Western Australia such as the discovery of this populations calving grounds.
  • Marine Mammal Genomics
    This site serves to keep the marine mammal research community updated on the progress of genomics/transcriptomics projects in marine mammals. Individuals and research groups are encouraged to list and discuss individual genomics projects in marine mammals and use this site to make contact.
  • Centre for Marine Studies (CMS), The University of Queensland
    co-ordinates research and teaching on the ocean, coast, estuaries and reefs of Queensland.
