Tropical and Temperature Reef Ecology

Tropical and Temperature Reef Ecology

We address coral reef ecosystem management and conservation. We look at solution-based approaches to reef restoration ecology. We seek a greater understanding of coral bleaching and disease.

Our research focus

Our work mostly focuses on:

  • feasibility of innovative interventions to aid coral survival and reef rehabilitation
  • maintaining biodiversity and ecosystem services under global change

Testing coral heat tolerance

We use state-of-the-art approaches in our dedicated Coralassist laboratory. We test coral heat tolerance from immunological, physiological, and microbial and proteomic perspectives. We look at assisted evolution via innovative coral propagation techniques.
