    About This Project

    The incredible diversity of colors displayed by coral reef fishes is one the most striking yet poorly understood aspects of their biology. We will measure both fish color and environmental light attenuation to develop an understanding of how color evolves in reef fishes. This conceptual framework will allow us to forecast how contemporary changes to reef habitats, especially those in water clarity, will impact coral reef ecosystems and conservation initiatives in the near future.

    Blast off!
