Specialists in Mangrove Ecology


Our team of skilled environmental scientists specialises in providing expertise in environmental monitoring, field investigations, and scientific reporting with a focus on mangrove environments. Our small experienced team comprises post-graduate qualified individuals who ensure the highest quality of professional work.

Professional development and ongoing education has defined our individual career paths, with Kristin completing a Masters of Tropical Environmental Management in 1998 and her PhD on mangrove biodiversity, impacts of disturbance and rehabilitation in 2007. Adam completed his Masters on the impacts of boardwalks on mangrove fauna in 2011 and will complete further tertiary training in Spatial Science at Charles Darwin University in 2023. We understand that quantitative analyses form the basis for practical, cost-effective ongoing solutions for a diverse range of environmental challenges.

At EcoScience NT, we prioritize environmental responsibility and sustainability. We collaborate with corporations and government bodies that appreciate the value of specialized environmental guidance. We adhere to national and international standards in delivering our services, enabling clients to comply with these regulations. Our client portfolio includes Santos, NT Government, INPEX Corporation, Boskalis, SLR, Seafarms, GHD, AECOM, and Jacobs.

Over the last three decades, EcoScience has had the privilege of studying numerous diverse and fascinating mangrove ecosystems through consultancy projects and independent research. During these studies, our team has made significant contributions to the knowledge of mangroves, including the discovery of several new species and the expansion of existing data in biodiversity.

Research has  focussed on productivity, the impacts of disturbance and rehabilitation of mangroves.


Such information is vital to enhance our understanding and improve management of these valuable ecosystems.  By expanding our knowledge of these environments we hope to advance conservation efforts to protect them and the important ecological services they provide.

We welcome the opportunity to share our knowledge of mangrove habitats through educational activities for people of all ages. Several mangrove identification booklets suitable for primary school students are available to download via the links below (see Resources). Hover your mouse over the slideshow images (above) for scientific names.
