Adam Wilkinson

PhD Candidate

Adam’s research aims to investigate the negative impacts of toxic metal element contamination on Green sea turtles. Fibropapillomatosis (FP) susceptibility has been suggested to be partially affected by metal exposure, and thus this project will measure the potential influence of such environmental factors on FP prevalence in a number of Green turtle populations along the Great Barrier Reef.

Thesis title: The identification of potential links between Fibropapillomatosis prevalence in Green sea turtles (Chelonia mydas) and heavy metal contamination along the Great Barrier Reef, Australia

Supervisors: A/Prof Ellen ArielDr John Brodie, Dr Stephanie Duce, Dr Graham Burgess, and Dr Hillary Vanderven
