The marine biota of the Geraldton coasts and of the Houtman Abrolhos islands provide an interesting case study in biodiversity. The off-shore, south-flowing Leeuwin current and the cooler, in-shore counter-current bring to those areas different suites of marine molluscs that are adapted to these different environments.
Join Shirley Slack-Smith as she looks at how these highly diverse organisms compete with one another or even depend upon one another for a place to live and thrive.
