The REEF project was established to examine the effect of sea urchins and potential anthropogenic stressors (sediment and nutrients) associated with urbanisation on the local and system-wide dynamics of rocky reefs in Port Phillip Bay (PPB), Victoria. The project explicitly addressed implications for management of resilience of PPB reefs.

The REEF project was undertaken in three parts:
        A. Assessment of bay-wide patterns in reef community structure.
        B. Determining the local ecology and dynamics of reef community structure in PPB.
        C. Determining patterns of connectivity of key species in PPB.
