Reef shot at Maro Reef, Northwest Hawaiian Islands by L. Preskitt

Welcome! the new webpage for the Phycology Laboratory at the University of Hawaii at Manoa on the Island of Oahu.  Our website is new and growing, so please be patient and come back to see new additions and updates.

We plan on adding information regarding:

  • More web publications with information on Hawaiian marine algae.
  • Field guides for native and invasive marine algae in Hawaii.
  • Graduate research on the ecology, systematics, and physiology of Hawaiian marine algae.
  • A photograph of the month taken by one of the graduate students featuring our unique Hawaiian reefs.

Thank you for visiting.
