Professor Gretta Pecl
A specialist in climate change ecology, Gretta studies what is happening to the species in our oceans as the water warms. To improve the quantity of data being collected, she has enlisted the help of thousands of recreational fishers, SCUBA divers, boaters and naturalists. The 'citizen science' model is called Redmap, or the Range Extension Database and Mapping project.

He researches the effect of corporate reputation and green marketing communications on consumer purchase behaviour, and the extent to which any effects are moderated by factors such as price or environmental involvement.
