B2/L2 – Sea Side – 2204-WS28
My main interest is to investigate acclimation and adaptation in scleractinian corals to different environmental conditions, specifically identifying how corals acclimate to their new environment, how this affects their growth and reproduction, in addition to identifying if acclimation in a parent coral induces certain traits in their offspring as a way of adaptation. This may help identify processes of how coral communities respond to environmental conditions in the face of climate change and could provide valuable insights in coral restoration techniques.
