Flinders scientist unveils ancient fossil fish

An ancient fossil fish that lived 423 million years ago – representing the earliest large vertebrate predator in the fossil record – has been described by Flinders University palaeontologist Dr Brian Choo.

Evolution’s first breath

In a major evolutionary discovery, Flinders University palaeontologist Professor John Long (pictured) has found evidence to show that four-legged animals first developed the ability to breathe air as ancient fish in water.

How fish food rises from ocean depths

Research has shed new light on the movement of nutrient-rich water generated in coastal canyons, a process which makes a fundamental contribution to the marine food chain.
