Marine environments are under increasing stress from organic pollution, generated from anthropogenic sources such as sewage outflows and aquaculture activities. In soft-sediment environments, organic pollutants can result in changes in the community structure of the bacterial and macrofauna communities (i.e. OTU or species density and richness and abundances of opportunistic or pollution sensitive species). This project will develop critical insights into how to effectively monitor organic pollution in the marine environment using newly developed molecular and functional approaches.
