Do they squeal, glow or create a stink when stressed? Many marine organisms will exhibit changes in their ecophysiology when put under environmental pressure, and these responses could be used to measure/ monitor environmental conditions. This project proposes to examine the responses of key species, which are known to have a clear ecological response to contamination (e.g. brittle stars (bioluminescence), polychaete (pheromones/ smell) to determine whether their responses can be quantitative measured and attributed to specific environmental.
