What Can American Samoan Corals Tell Us About the Future of Coral Reefs in a Changing Climate?

by Dr. Daniel Barshis

Coral reefs around the world are threatened by rising ocean temperatures. Dr. Dan Barshis will present a summary of his work over the last 20 years investigating how some corals can survive these rising temperatures in American Samoa, including recent work studying the territory's deep reef corals. Dr. Barshis' team employs a combination of field transplantation, controlled acclimation experiments, and advanced genomic techniques to uncover the relative roles of adaptation and acclimatization in determining coral tolerance limits and sensitivity to climate change impacts.
