For a long time, scientists have wondered how a large number of species can live together while competing for a single, limiting resource. Why doesn’t a single species that is better at competing for the resource crowd out all the
Coral larvae depend on their parents to create nooks and crannies for them so that they can stay, settle and re-establish after a reef has been damaged, according to new findings published this week. “Storms, floods, and coral bleaching damage
Hello Dr. Mizerek! Toni’s has been officially awarded her PhD for her thesis about using species traits to understand reef coral distributions and responses to stress.
Our work with UTS monitoring Sydney Harbour’s temperate corals has found widespread recovery from the bleaching reported in April in response to cooler waters. Ongoing demography and physiological studies of the Sydney Harbour corals are providing much-needed information about how
Kyle Zawada’s Ph.D. work on 3D scanning corals has been highlighted in a press release by Creaform. Kyle has spent much of the last two months at the Natural History Museum in London scanning coral skeletons from the collection there.
The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List classifies species into categories of risk of extinction. Assessments are mostly based on quantitative data and evaluate if the population of a given species is either declining or stable. Species
