About This Project

We hypothesize that, even on extremely small-scales, there are genotypes in Hawaiian corals that are associated with areas of high temperature and/or temperature variation. We will utilize genomic methods (ddRAD) to characterize coral genotypes and make comparisons with existing environmental data.

If local adaptation exists on this scale, we can promote exchange of genes between populations with thermotolerant traits and those without to increase resilience to bleaching events.

Blast off!
