    Javier Atalah
    Cawthron Institute, Nelson, New Zealand
    Biofouling 29:559-71. 2013
    ..This study demonstrated that augmentative biocontrol using anemones has the potential to reduce biofouling on marine artificial structures, although considerable further work is required to refine this tool before its application...

    Javier Atalah
    Cawthron Institute, Nelson, New Zealand
    PLoS ONE 8:e80365. 2013
