Dr James Gilmour studies Kimberley coral reefs and their capacity to thrive in dynamic settings; climate change however, is challenging their resilience. Dr Jim Underwood studies coral reef animals, like fish, corals and seagrass, which release larvae or seeds to form ‘recruits’. How far do larvae and seeds move on currents before they settle and grow to adults. When corals bleach, will new recruits come from local survivors or from reefs far away? Wed, Nov 15, The Hall, University of Notre Dame, Broome.
