Join us for at talk by Raphael Ritson-Williams, a University of Hawaii at Manoa graduate student from the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology.
Corals surround the Hawaiian Islands and are critical for our way of life. Even though they are critical for our island life these are threatened by climate change and warming oceans. In both 2014 and 2015 there were widespread coral bleaching events throughout the Hawaiian Islands. This talk will discuss the basic biology of corals, the patterns of bleaching in 2014 and 2015 and then we will discuss the long term consequences of these recent bleaching events.
