About Me

Cath Lovelock is a marine botanist who specialises in the ecology and ecophysiology of coastal plant communities. Her research group is particularly interested in the influence of environment, including global climate change, on plant community productivity and diversity. She conducts experimental work over a wide range of coastal plant communities that include macroalgae, mangroves and cyanobacterial mat communities. Some of her current research projects include assessment of how sea level and nutrient enrichment influences mangrove and salt marsh ecosystems, how mangroves mediate exchanges between the land and sea and how metabolism of coral reefs varies over latitude.
