Item Summary

Title:The Wonderful World of Corals: Harnessing Basic Science to Address and Ecological Crisis
Authors:Gates, Ruth D.
Contributors:University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research (sponsor)
Date Issued:05 Nov 2014
Series:Mānoa Faculty Lecture Series
Abstract:Coral reefs in Hawai'i and across the globe continue to decline in health due to intensifying climate change, resource extraction, and pollution. Although the future looks bleak, certain corals and reefs are not only surviving, but also thriving in conditions that kill others.

Dr. Gates will unveil the complex biology that underpins this natural variation in response. She will then discuss how this knowledge can be harnessed to develop tools that build resilience on reefs, arresting and improving the prognosis for coral reefs.
