Centre for

Marine Biodiversity and Biotechnology

From the shoreline to the deep ocean, tackling issues from pure ecology
and physiology to aquaculture, marine spatial planning and conservation.

Dan Harries

Dr Harries is a marine benthic ecologist specializing in community ecology and conservation. His main interests include the ecology and conservation of shallow temperate marine biogenic reefs, the ecological impacts of invasive marine species and the ecology of sea caves. He is also interested in the community ecology of meiofauna, subterranean biology and the ecology of fauna inhabiting aquatic and terrestrial cave environments. Specifically, he is interested in the interaction of the biological and environmental factors that structure biological communities, including the influence of anthropogenic factors (e.g. fishing disturbance or pollution).
