About the article
John M. Huisman
John M. Huisman is a research fellow at Murdoch University in Perth, Western Australia. He earned his PhD at the University of Melbourne, where he developed his interests in the taxonomy of marine macroalgae. After moving to Perth he embarked on an ambitious lifelong project to document (by description and photographically) the seaweeds of Australia’s west coast, an undertaking disrupted briefly in 2002–2003 when he spent a rewarding sojourn at the University of Hawaii. John has authored several books, including Marine Plants of Australia and Hawaiian Reef Plants, and is presently writing a book on the marine flora of tropical Western Australia.
Rainbo R.M. Dixon
Rainbo R.M. Dixon completed undergraduate studies in Science at the University of Melbourne in 2005 with an honours project on the ethnobotany of marine plants in Vanuatu, supervised by Dr. Gerry Kraft. She undertook PhD studies at Murdoch University under the supervision of Dr. John Huisman looking at taxonomy and phylogenetics in the brown algal genus Sargassum, completing in 2015. Rainbo currently work in the research group of Professor Andrew Lowe at the University of Adelaide on DNA timber tracking.
Felicity N. Hart
Felicity N. Hart completed her BSc (Hons.) at Murdoch University in 2010, her research topic assessing the diversity and pest potential of Codium in Western Australia. She currently works as a botanical consultant.
Heroen Verbruggen is a senior lecturer in the School of Biosciences at the University of Melbourne. Research in his lab focuses on the evolutionary diversification of marine algae, using molecular phylogenetics to explore their diversification and answer specific questions about their evolution. Systematic research is also a focus, including the question how molecular and morphometric data can complement one another in algal species delimitation.
Robert J. Anderson
Robert J. Anderson obtained his PhD at the University of Cape Town in 1982 and since then has been employed as a seaweed biologist by the Fisheries Department of the South African government, where he is responsible for research on seaweed resources. He is also an honorary Associate Professor at UCT. He is interested in most aspects of seaweed biology, including ecology, biogeography and taxonomy.
