Overview

Professor Anthony J. Richardson has research interests in impacts of climate change, marine ecology, and analyses of large datasets using modern statistical techniques.

He holds an Honours degree in Zoology from the University of Queensland and a PhD degree in Marine Ecology from the University of Cape Town. Since 2005, Anthony has a joint position between the School of Mathematics and Physics at UQ and CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere. He has previously held positions at the University of Cape Town (South Africa), the University of the Western Cape (South Africa), and the Sir Alister Hardy Foundation of Ocean Science (UK).

His research is recognised internationally for significant contributions in the fields of impacts of global change (climate, fishing, ocean acidification, eutrophication) on marine systems, particularly on plankton communities. He has had experience working in marine systems in the North and South Atlantic, Indian and Pacific Oceans. Anthony is the author of 150 peer-reviewed papers. He enjoys teaching mathematics and statistics to ecologists. For more informaiton on my research, see my Google Scholar page https://scholar.google.com.au/citations?user=RLeJq98AAAAJ&hl=en&oi=ao

Research Interests

  • Impacts of climate change, fishing and eutrophication on marine systems
    Analysis of large datasets to describe and understand how natural marine systems are responding to global change
  • Changes in global biodiversity
    Application of advanced statistical models to large biological datasets to investigate how biodiversity is distributed in the world's oceans, how it is responding to climate change, and how we can best conserve it
  • Predicting impacts of fishing and climate change on marine systems
    Using ecosystem modelling to understand the interaction of climate change with other stressors such as fishing, ocean acidification and eutrophication, and using this understanding to suggest how we can better manage marine systems
  • Elucidate the structure and function of marine systems
    Analysis of large biological datasets to answer fundamental ecological questions concerning organism size, functional types, ecosystem productivity, biodiversity and the environment
  • Biology and ecology of manta rays
    Feeding, movement, behaviour and conservation of manta rays

Research Impacts

I was the first to show that the timing of marine events in the ocean - such as blooms - are becoming earlier because of climate change. I have also co-led the global working group that has provided the most comprehensive synthesis of the impacts of climate change on marine systems. My work on climate impacts has been heavily cited in the IPCC 4th and 5th Assessment Reports. It culminated in me being invited to co-author of Chapter 30 The Ocean in the IPCC 5th Assessment. This Chapter has helped raised the profile of the impact of climate change on our oceans and has motivated our world leaders to act on climate change.

  • This century, climate change is likely to become the major threat to marine biodiversity. This project will use massive Australian, regional and global datasets of marine biodiversity (with 10s of millions of records) in combination with environmental layers to model the current distribution of global biodiversity using compositional modelling (gradient forest and generalized dissimilarity modelling). Outputs from Global Climate Models will then be used to map the potential changes in community ranges. Using these derived data, the adequacy and representativeness of the existing global Marine Protected Area (MPA) network will be assessed for time slices in the future. This project will also develop optimal configurations of the MPA network that might facilitate the climate-driven movement and ultimate protection of marine biodiversity.

    Methods:Generalized dissimilarity modelling; gradient forest modelling

  • It is currently challenging to represent zooplankton in biogeochemical and ecosystem models because of the complexity in the zooplankton community, with at least a dozen common phyla. As respiration, growth, mobility, abundance, and mortality are all related to organism size, describing the zooplankton community in terms of size of individuals and incorporating this into models provides a natural way to move forward.

    In this project, the PhD student will use a global dataset of zooplankton size spectra to develop methods of incorporating size into existing coastal and global ecosystem models, and investigate the impact of these formulations on model predictions.

    This PhD position is part of a larger Australian Research Council Discovery project that is analyzing a global database of zooplankton size spectra to investigate how zooplankton control the transfer of energy from phytoplankton to fish. The PhD student will have access to an unprecedented national and international database of zooplankton size spectra, and extensive collaborations with statisticians, biologists and ecosystem modellers.

  • Methods:Building individual based models and species distribution models using velocity

    Marine biodiversity will be impacted by climate change. Expectations for the rates of species’ range shifts and changes in the timing of biological events can be generated by combining spatial and seasonal temperature gradients with predictions of temperature under global warming. This project will use the new concepts of climate velocity and seasonal shift and their trajectories to investigate factors that might drive the reshuffling of biodiversity at a community level in time and space. The focus will be on applying the concepts of velocity, seasonal shift and trajectories in developing conservation strategies.

  • This century, climate change is likely to become the major threat to marine biodiversity. This project will use massive Australian, regional and global datasets of marine biodiversity (with 10s of millions of records) in combination with environmental layers to model the current distribution of global biodiversity using compositional modelling (gradient forest and generalized dissimilarity modelling). Outputs from Global Climate Models will then be used to map the potential changes in community ranges. Using these derived data, the adequacy and representativeness of the existing global Marine Protected Area (MPA) network will be assessed for time slices in the future. This project will also develop optimal configurations of the MPA network that might facilitate the climate-driven movement and ultimate protection of marine biodiversity.

    Methods:Generalized dissimilarity modelling; gradient forest modelling

  • It is currently challenging to represent zooplankton in biogeochemical and ecosystem models because of the complexity in the zooplankton community, with at least a dozen common phyla. As respiration, growth, mobility, abundance, and mortality are all related to organism size, describing the zooplankton community in terms of size of individuals and incorporating this into models provides a natural way to move forward.

    In this project, the PhD student will use a global dataset of zooplankton size spectra to develop methods of incorporating size into existing coastal and global ecosystem models, and investigate the impact of these formulations on model predictions.

    This PhD position is part of a larger Australian Research Council Discovery project that is analyzing a global database of zooplankton size spectra to investigate how zooplankton control the transfer of energy from phytoplankton to fish. The PhD student will have access to an unprecedented national and international database of zooplankton size spectra, and extensive collaborations with statisticians, biologists and ecosystem modellers.

  • Methods:Building individual based models and species distribution models using velocity

    Marine biodiversity will be impacted by climate change. Expectations for the rates of species’ range shifts and changes in the timing of biological events can be generated by combining spatial and seasonal temperature gradients with predictions of temperature under global warming. This project will use the new concepts of climate velocity and seasonal shift and their trajectories to investigate factors that might drive the reshuffling of biodiversity at a community level in time and space. The focus will be on applying the concepts of velocity, seasonal shift and trajectories in developing conservation strategies.

  • Plankton form the base of the marine food web. There is very little information about how climate change has altered Australian plankton communities. Using the largest dataset of marine plankton in Australia - collected by the Integrated Marine Observing System - this project will investigate the seasonal, interannual, and decadal varaition in phytoplankton and zooplankton communities around Australia. This information will be combined with ecoystem models to understand flow-on effects on higher trophic levels. How plankton will respond to climate change will determine the productivity of Australia's marine systems in the future.

  • Queenslanders are keen anglers. Each year more than 700,000 people fish for recreation, with anglers taking home around 8500 tonnes of fin fish, crabs and prawns. Queensland's fisheries resources are also important for tourism, attracting anglers from around Australia and the world. The Queensland Government has conducted seven Statewide recreational fishing surveys between 2007 and 2015. The surveys provide estimates of recreational fishing harvests by species, which is a crucial input for assessing the fishing pressure on and status of fished stocks in Queensland. This information is used to safeguard marine resources for today and tomorrow.

    New statistical methodologies are required to improve the accuracy of estimates and confidence intervals between surveys. This is to include regionally focused information on recreational fishing participation rates, where and how many people fish, and what they catch.

    Approach:

    Project statistical components include:

    Improved estimation of state-wide recreational harvests, including resampling, bootstrap and MCMCtechniques. Quantify changes in survey angler avidity and recall bias between survey years and methodologies; adjust previous survey data to obtain improved estimates. Evaluating sampling frames - develop methods to generate state-wide harvest estimates (and associated measures of uncertainty) from several synchronous samples taken from different sampling frames (e.g. a licence frame and a residential telephone number list). Develop hierarchical and conditional mixed models for estimation of recreational fish catch and catch rates. Investigate the statistical modelling of recreational survey data collected from multiple survey methods. From survey to analysis: dealing with differences in the scale survey data are collected at and the scale data are analysed at. Examine appropriate estimation methods for different fish species. Develop statistical methods for low fish abundance or recreational species caught by ‘hard-to-reach’ fishers. Develop methods to engage and retain recreational fishers in volunteer data contribution programs.

  • The Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) within the Queensland Government monitors commercial and recreational fisheries throughout the state. The objectives of this fishery-dependent monitoring include collecting the data required to assess the status of key fish stocks and the effectiveness of current management arrangements (especially fisheries with catch / effort quotas), as well as helping develop new, effective management arrangements (https://www.daf.qld.gov.au/fisheries/monitoring-our-fisheries).

    Turning data into advice about the status of Queensland’s fish stocks or the sustainability of Queensland’s fisheries is the challenge and occurs in a number of different ways. The most regular assessments now occur annually for key species, as outlined in the “Framework for Defining Stock Status” (https://www.daf.qld.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0003/63930/PMS-Framework.pdf) and the national framework (https://www.daf.qld.gov.au/fisheries/monitoring-our-fisheries/data-reports/sustainability-reporting/stock-status-assessments).The main activity in defining stock status each year is a workshop, which involves assessing all the available fish length and age data. Formal stock assessments are carried out less frequently (https://www.daf.qld.gov.au/fisheries/monitoring-our-fisheries/data-reports/sustainability-reporting/stock-assessment-reports) using mathematical modelling to reconstruct the history of species-specific fisheries from all available data.

    New statistical methodologies are required to: 1) evaluate to the effective sampling of fish length and age data, and 2) quantify rates of fish mortality and reference points.

    Approach:

    Review and evaluate efficient sampling programs: Is the right amount of sampling occurring for each species? Are there any significant biases in the sampling programs for each species?

    Assess whether routine analyses are being carried out correctly and to develop new analyses for fisheries management.

    Project components include:

    Develop quantitative analyses to optimise fishery-dependent sampling across multiple species and regions.

    Includes developing routine methods for assessing precision of current sampling of fish length and age.

    Develop new methods for turning fish length and age data into advice (indicators) about fishing pressure and the status of fish stocks. Develop a corresponding harvest strategy and reference points for judging the performance of the indicators.
