Dr Morgan completed her Doctor of Philosophy with Distinction in 1998 from the Department of Zoology, James Cook University, Townsville, Australia. Her thesis title was: Evaluation of DNA sequences for solving taxonomic problems in trematodes, specifically echinostomes. Dr Morgan worked for two years in the Department of Parasitology at The University of Queensland then completed […]
Scoping current and future genetic tools, their limitations and their applications for wild fisheries management
Abstract Adult bull sharks (Carcharhinus leucas) are ubiquitous in near- and off-shore habitats across northern Australia. Females give birth in freshwater / estuarine nurseries and juveniles mature in these environments. If females return to the same pupping areas, then this reproductive philopatry could drive patterns of genetic diversity among nurseries. To test this hypothesis we […]
