Science Pub From Home: Reef-building Corals’ Response to Environmental Stress

At Zoom

July 12, 2021 / 6:30 PM–7:30 PM

Coral reefs are suffering from rapid changes in their environment, like increasing temperatures and CO2 concentrations, but some corals are more tolerant than others. University of Rhode Island Ph.D. students Danielle Becker and Emma Strand will share their research on corals’ response to the stress of climate change. Their work seeks to understand the genetic mechanisms behind this stress response, which could help scientists predict what happens to future generations of corals.
