Career Summary

Biography

Associate Professor Natalie Moltschaniwskyj commenced an academic appointment with the School of Environmental & Life Sciences based at the Ourimbah campus in 2011.  She is part of the Environmental Science and Management discipline, focussing on supporting and developing the marine science teaching and research which is only supported on the Ourimbah campus.  

Assoc Prof Natalie Moltschaniwskyj has more than 15 years research experience in the field of marine ecology, with research expertise that includes community and population dynamics of invertebrate and vertebrate species.  Her research in the area of marine science focuses on reproductive biology and ecology of molluscs (eg squid, mussels, oysters and abalone), working closely with both wild fishers and aquaculture.  She approaches questions in marine ecology using a hierarchical approach from the physiology/biology of the animals through to the effect of the physical environment on population ecology and biology. With a strong background in the analysis and interpretation of biological datasets, a high level of competence in the use of univariate and multivariate analyses, Assoc Prof Moltschaniwskyj has extensive experience in the communication of outcomes in both written and verbal forums.  

Assoc Prof Moltschaniwskyj  supports an approach and teaching philosophy that is a balance between pure and applied science, ensuring that there is a strong connection to the real world through photos, videos, and real practical exercises.  In the development of laboratory and lecture material for teaching she recognises that tertiary education is both about academic and practical training.  It is important to her that students have the opportunity during practical sessions to explore the ideas and concepts taught in lectures.  

Research Expertise
My area of research is marine invertebrate population and community ecology, my specific area of interest is in molluscs, with explicit expertise in squid biology and ecology. However, my skills and expertise are broader than this and I have worked with a number of marine species, including fish and corals. I am particularly interested in the relationships between different biological/ecological organisation levels, such that I seek to determine the connections between the ecology of a species, its whole organismal biology and its physiology. I have been instrumental in developing population and individual-based approaches to research questions that identify and quantify energy allocation and energetic trade-offs responsible for life history traits (growth and reproduction) in squid. The outcomes of my research have had implications in both pure research associated with understanding growth dynamics, which resulted in a review paper, and in fisheries management of squid species. My expertise in the area of allocation of energy to growth and reproduction in invertebrates has resulted in the development of productive collaborations with shellfish aquaculture industries in Tasmania, in particular the oyster and mussel industry. In particular, quantifying the allocation of energy to somatic and reproductive growth of selectively bred oysters in aquaculture. More recent interactions with the mussel industry have explored the reproductive biology and spat biology of blue mussels to allow controlled year-round production of juveniles. Collaborations at University of Tasmania are ongoing and currently include an industry funded project on the stress response in live abalone during the harvest and transport of animals to the processors.

Teaching Expertise
I have been involved in tertiary teaching for more than 15 years, during which time I have developed an approach that provides students with more than book learning. I recognise and understand that students need skills in using and applying the theory presented in lecture and books, including hands-on and problem solving skills. In all my classes there is a clear and explicit integration of lecture and laboratory material allowing students to use practical sessions as an opportunity to explore the ideas and concepts taught in lectures. I teach third year courses in Marine Fisheries Biology & Management and Estuarine Ecology both which have face-to-face delivery with field trips and laboratory components. I also provide guest lectures for Animal Behaviour and Environmental Science Concepts. I have experience in teaching in the the online environment with an elective course "The Marine Environment". This requires very different approaches in motivating and stimulating students and also in the management of the course. I use a range of tools improve the quality of the interaction that students have with me and to ensure that I engage with students in a way that positively increasing their learning capacity and interest. I strongly support a philosophy to undergraduate teaching that includes a balance between pure and applied science and hands-on element. In all my teaching I provide a strong connection to the real world through photos, videos, and real practical exercises, so that students to look at the world beyond growth rates, test-tubes and standard error bars.

In-situ signage is a cost effective environmental education tool used in marine protected area (MPA) management, and the design and location of signage is crucial to attract the attention of targeted audiences. The implementation of multiple-use MPAs increases the challenges of communicating awareness of MPA boundaries and permitted activities. Currently, little is known about how effective signage in multiple-use MPAs is in communicating information to stakeholders that will promote supportive attitudes and behaviours towards MPAs. This study evaluated the usefulness of in-situ signage in an existing multiple-use MPA, to determine if signs pertaining to the MPA captured the attention of recreational users, and provided adequate information. Structured interviews with recreational fishers, divers, and other users, were used to determine users' awareness of being in an MPA, their awareness of management objectives and associated zoning scheme, together with levels of agreement or disagreement on whether or not current in-situ signage adequately communicates information about the MPA. It was evident that the types and accessibility of in-situ signs in the MPA may not be effective at capturing the attention of intended audiences and providing relevant information, with the exception of signs located at the dive site, due to their design, size, and placement. Awareness differed among the three user groups, together with their views on the effectiveness of signage. Many recreational fishers believed existing signage was inadequate and unclear, and expressed frustrations with the complexity of zoning rules and location of their boundaries. Based on this study, recommendations about the presentation, content, and placement of signage relative to access points, and information required by MPA users, is provided.

Shifts in species' ranges are one of the most frequently reported and globally ubiquitous impacts of climate change, with rates of movement being particularly high in the sea. The arrival of multiple range extending species can cause serious issues for natural resource managers; some species threaten ecosystem function while others present social and/or economic opportunities. An early indication of which species are potentially extending their ranges can provide useful guidance for managers regarding future investments in impact assessment, monitoring or potential management intervention. Given that scientific monitoring data on potential range shifting species are often sparse in the marine environment a rapid assessment that utilises and assimilates disparate data sources that vary in quality, quantity and collection methods is needed. Off the east coast of Tasmania surface waters have been warming at almost four times the global average and dozens of species range shifts have already been documented. Building on existing methods used in the early detection of invasive species, we developed a cost-effective and rapid screening assessment tool that uses monitoring data from a variety of sources, particularly from the citizen science program Redmap, to classify levels of confidence in potential range extensions over a three year time period (2009-2012) for a variety of marine species. From our assessment of 47 species, eight were classified with "high" confidence as potentially extending their ranges. The "high" confidence classification of these species suggests they should be a priority when investigating potential ecosystem and socio-economic impacts.

Habitat characteristics greatly influence the patterns of distribution and abundance in scallops, providing structure for the settlement of spat and influencing predation risk and rates of survival. Establishing scallop-habitat relationships is relevant to understanding the ecological processes that regulate scallop populations and to managing critical habitats. This information is particularly relevant for the D'Entrecasteaux Channel, south-eastern Tasmania (147.335 W, 43.220 S), a region that has supported significant but highly variable scallop production over many years, including protracted periods of stock collapse. Three species of scallops are present in the region; the commercial scallop Pecten fumatus, the queen scallop Equichlamys bifrons, and the doughboy scallop Mimachlamys asperrima . We used dive surveys and Generalized Additive Modelling to examine the relationship between the distribution and abundance patterns of each species and associated habitat characteristics. The aggregated distribution of each species could be predicted as a function of sediment type and species-specific habitat structural components. While P. fumatus was strongly associated with finer sediments and E. bifrons with coarse grain sediments, M. asperrima had a less selective association, possibly related to its ability to attach on a wide range of substrates. Other habitat characteristics explaining P. fumatus abundance were depth, Asterias amurensis abundance, shell and macroalgae cover. Equichlamys bifrons was strongly associated with macroalgae and seagrass cover, whereas M. asperrima abundance was greatly explained by sponge cover. The models define a set of relationships from which plausible hypotheses can be developed. We propose that these relationships are mediated by predation pressure as well as the specific behavioural characteristics of each species. The findings also highlight the specific habitat characteristics that are relevant for spatial management and habitat restoration plans. © 2014 Mendo et al.

This study described seasonal differences in the histopathological and hemolymph chemistry changes in different family lines of Pacific oysters, Crassostrea gigas, in response to the stress of an abrupt change to low salinity, and mechanical grading. The most significant changes in pallial cavity salinity, hemolymph chemistry and histopathological findings occurred in summer at low salinity. In summer (water temperature 18. °C) at low salinity, 9 (25.7% of full salinity), the mean pallial cavity salinity in oysters at day 3 was 19.8. ±. 1.6 (SE) and day 10 was 22.8. ±. 1.6 (SE) lower than oysters at salinity 35. Associated with this fall in pallial cavity salinity, mean hemolymph sodium for oysters at salinity 9 on day 3 and 10 were 297.2. mmol/L. ±. 20(SE) and 350.4. mmol/L. ±. 21.3(SE) lower than oysters at salinity 35. Similarly mean hemolymph potassium in oysters held at salinity 9 at day 3 and 10 were 5.6. mmol/L. ±. 0.6(SE) and 7.9. mmol/L. ±. 0.6 (SE) lower than oysters at salinity 35. These oysters at low salinity had expanded intercellular spaces and significant intracytoplasmic vacuolation distending the cytoplasm of epithelial cells in the alimentary tract and kidney and hemocyte infiltrate (diapedesis) within the alimentary tract wall. In contrast, in winter (water temperature 8. °C) oyster mean pallial cavity salinity only fell at day 10 and this was by 6.0. ±. 0.6 (SE) compared to that of oysters at salinity 35. There were limited histopathological changes (expanded intercellular spaces and moderate intracytoplasmic vacuolation of renal epithelial cells) in these oysters at day 10 in low salinity. Mechanical grading and family line did not influence the oyster response to sudden low salinity. These findings provide additional information for interpretation of non-lethal, histopathological changes associated with temperature and salinity variation. © 2014 Elsevier Inc.

Cephalopod life cycles generally share a set of stages that take place in different habitats and are adapted to specific, though variable, environmental conditions. Throughout the lifespan, individuals undertake a series of brief transitions from one stage to the next. Four transitions were identified: fertilisation of eggs to their release from the female (1), from eggs to paralarvae (2), from paralarvae to subadults (3) and from subadults to adults (4). An analysis of each transition identified that the changes can be radical (i.e. involving a range of morphological, physiological and behavioural phenomena and shifts in habitats) and critical (i.e. depending on environmental conditions essential for cohort survival). This analysis underlines that transitions from eggs to paralarvae (2) and from paralarvae to subadults (3) present major risk of mortality, while changes in the other transitions can have evolutionary significance. This synthesis suggests that more accurate evaluation of the sensitivity of cephalopod populations to environmental variation could be achieved by taking into account the ontogeny of the organisms. The comparison of most described species advocates for studies linking development and ecology in this particular group. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

A need to improve larval rearing techniques led to the development of protocols for catecholamine-induced settlement of flat oyster, Ostrea angasi, larvae. To further refine these techniques and optimize settlement percentages, the influence of salinity or temperature on development of O. angasi larvae was assessed using epinephrine-induced metamorphosis. Larvae were reared between salinities of 15-35 and temperatures between 14.5 and 31°C. The greatest percentage survival, growth, development occurred when larvae were reared between 26 and 29°C and between salinities of 30 and 35. Larvae reared outside this salinity and temperature range exhibited reduced growth, survival and/or delayed development. Short-term (1 h) reduction in larval rearing temperature from 26°C to 23.5°C significantly increased larval metamorphosis without affecting larval survival. Short-term (1 h) increase in larval rearing temperature from 26°C to 29 and 31°C decreased larval survival and metamorphosis. To ensure repeatability in outcomes, tests showed that larvae sourced from different estuaries did not vary significantly in their metamorphic response to short-term temperature manipulation and epinephrine-induced metamorphosis. © 2014 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.
