Creating a Future for Coral Reefs (And Hopefully Everyone Else)

Dr. Forest Rohwer is a microbial ecologist, and he will be talking about his research examining how human influences change the microbes and viruses that live on coral reefs, leading to coral diseases and global reef decline. To counter this process, Dr. Rohwer and colleagues are building Coral Reef Arks, tools for preserving coral reef biodiversity and building new coral reefs. In this lecture, Dr. Rohwer will discuss coral microbes and their effects, the Coral Reef Arks project, and FLoCS, a project for carbon dioxide drawdown.

Sponsored by the Center for Natural Sciences, Phi Beta Kappa and the Taylor Fund.
