Coral Reef Ecology

Image of Current Focus for Coral Reef Ecology

My current research is on coral communities growing in mangroves within Virgin Islands Coral Reef National Monument (St. John) and the insights they might provide on how coral reefs will respond to global climate change.  I am interested in the effects of bleaching and disease on these communities and on corals in deeper reefs around St. John.  My research is in close collaboration with other USGS and National Park Service scientists.
