Diving and Experiments!

Lab Note #4
Jun 26, 2014
We went on a dive two days ago to collect diseased and healthy corals for an experiment looking at the effects of different antibiotics on disease transmission.  We were up until 3 AM after diving setting up the experiment! Looking forward to getting some results in the next few days.

There seems to be a lot more WBD on the reef during these warmer months than during the winter.  The water is about 86 degrees now, in January it's usually about 80.  We'll be running transects to get some hard numbers on disease increase.  

WBD spreading from one fragment of cervicornis to another.
