Research project: Larval-fish ecology - effects of climate change on connectivity in coral reef systems


Start date:

We have attempted to estimate the effects of climate change on population connectivity in reef fishes. Our conclusion is that the predicted changes in temperature will result in a decrease in the geographic scale of population connectivity. This will have major implications for the way we manage fisheries and marine protected areas.
