Biography summary

After initially training as a geologist, my main work has been university teaching in the disciplines of geology, physical geography, environmental science and palaeobiology.

I am currently the course director for the Bachelor of Science at Deakin University.

I have research interests in the fields of micropalaeontology (principally fossil Ostracoda), marine stratigraphy, palaeoecology and palaeo-oceanography.

Research interests

Research projects
Systematic classification of fossil and living marine Ostracoda
Palaeo-oceanographical studies using fossil Ostracoda
Marine stratigraphy of the Bass Strait coastal hinterland
Physiographical evolution of south-east Australian estuaries

Research themes
Mark Warne’s research focuses on fossil and living Ostracoda.  These microscopic shrimp-like aquatic animals live in a minute bi-valved shell (carapace), which is usually composed of the mineral calcite (CaCO3).  These crustaceans have a long fossil record, with ostracod-like forms extending back to the Cambrian Period (~ 500 million years ago).  At the present day, ostracods live in a huge diversity of aquatic environments, ranging from moist forest floors, creeks and rivers, lakes and lagoons, swamps and bogs, caves and aquifers, to coastal rock pools, shallow shelf seas, and deep ocean realms.  They reach their highest species diversities in shallow marine environments.  The main application of fossil ostracods to the geological sciences is in the interpretation of depositional environments for sedimentary rocks.  The main use of ostracods within the environmental sciences is as proxies of environmental change in aquatic ecosystems.
