The broad aim of my research is to determine how high-latitude corals in Western Australia will respond to climate change stressors such as warmer waters and ocean acidification. More specifically, my study looks at early life history development, such as larval duration and survival as well as early skeletal development, under projected changes in ocean temperature and pH. I am investigating the vulnerability of high-latitude corals and possible changes in coral distribution in response to climate change, as well as potential adaptive and acclimative abilities of WA corals at their latitudinal limits.
