About Coral Reef Ecology: Reef Response to Environmental Change at Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences - BIOS

This course explores the responses of coral reefs to environmental change and focuses on reef ecology from two fundamental perspectives: 1) reef biogeochemistry emphasizes the ecosystem processes of metabolism (primary production and respiration) and calcification, and 2) reef resilience emphasizes the processes of reproduction and recruitment. Lectures will be complemented with field and laboratory exercises. Students will gain experience in field techniques measuring metabolism and calcification, assessing recruitment recovery, monitoring bleaching, disease, and invasive species. Laboratory experiments will include coral fertilization, symbiosis and bleaching, and use of a flume mesocosm to investigate effects of temperature and acidification on metabolism and calcification of different types of reef communities.
