- Indicative Funding
- $28,000,000 over 7 years
- The overarching aim of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Integrated Coral Reef Studies is to provide the scientific knowledge necessary for sustaining ecosystem goods and services of the world's coral reefs, which support the livelihoods and food security of millions of people in the tropics. The Centre will enhance Australia's global leadership in coral reef science through three ambitious research programs addressing the future of coral reefs and their ability to adapt to change. A key outcome of the research will be providing tangible benefits to all Australians by bui8lding bridges between the natural and social sciences, strengthening capacity, and informing and supporting transformative changes in coral reef governance and management.

Assessing the Ecological Effects of Management Zoning on Inshore Reefs of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park
- Indicative Funding
- $520,000 over 4 years
- This proposed project will provide an assessment of the ecological effects of management zoning on inshore reefs of the Great Barrier Reef marine Park (GBRMP). The proposed research will build upon and enhance our long-term monitoring program that has a strong track record of delivering findings that have proven to be highly relevant and useful to the GBRMPA and a range of Marine Park stakeholders. The key objectives are to provide a robust assessment of the effects of the GBRMP zoning plan on: *Abundance and population structure of fishery target species *Reef fish and benthic (coral) community composition, status and dynamics *Reef community productivity and resilience *Usage patterns of recreational fishers and compliance with zoning regulations

The impact of typhoons on reef fish assemblages, and the effectiveness of marine reserve networks in aiding their recovery
- Indicative Funding
- $39,380 over 2 years
- Increasing anthropogenic and environmental impacts are modifying coral reefs and their associated fish assemblages in unprecedented ways, compromising food security and biological stability. Networks of no-take marine reserves are implemented in Australia and the Philippines to conserve biodiversity and manage fish stocks, but it's unknown whether reserves can continue to perform under cumulative stressors, including those from cyclones and typhoons. For the first time, this study will 1) investigate how the structure function and behaviour of herbivorous reef fish assemblages are impacted by typhoons; and 2) discover whether marine reserves facilitate recovery of fish stocks following these impacts.

Using larval connectivity to inform marine reserve network designs in the Coral Triangle
- Indicative Funding
- $365,000 over 3 years
- Networks of no-take marine reserves are considered critical tools to ensure conservation and food security targets in the Coral Triangle Region, just north of Australia. More than 1400 community-managed marine reserves have been established in the Philippines, the most populace part of the Coral Triangle. The local conservation and fisheries benefits of these reserves have been well documented. A need now exists to convert these individual reserves into operational reserve networks. To do so, we propose to use new information on larval connectivity, biodiversity and human usage patterns, and local governance networks, to systematically improve the design of an existing Philippine reserve network.
