Professor Mark ‘The Master’ Hay shows the Coral Algae Research Lab the tricks to examine algal allelopathic effects on corals

Professor Mark Hay was flown to Heron Island, Australia to show the Coral Algae Research Lab how to run algal-extract competitive experiments on corals.   Algae have three primary ways to compete  with corals; 1) physical abrasion/overgrowth, 2) Dissolved organic Find out more

New paper on coralline algae showing role of mineralogy on responses to ocean acidification

Coral reef ecosystems develop best in high flow environments but their fragile frameworks are also vulnerable high wave energy. Wave resistant algal rims, predominantly made up of the crustose coralline algae (CCA) Porolithon onkodes and P. pachydermum, are therefore critical Find out more
