Dr Angus McDonald

Dr Angus Macdonald is interested in benthic organisms and their ecology, and has been involved in a number of studies both in the field and in the laboratory.  Dr Angus Macdonald has previously studied benthic environments from the Pondoland coast to northern Mozambique. Currently he is involved in examining relative genetic connectivity between populations of marine organisms (rock lobster, deep water crustaceans, bait fish, sharks, reef coral, zoanthids, echinoderms, molluscs) in the south west Indian Ocean.
