Guillermo secures a Discovery Project research grant!

Along with Associate Professor Catriona Hurd and Professor Robert Steneck, Guillermo is leading a project that aims to investigate the biological and ecological mechanisms by which reef-building coralline algae (CCA) may have survived past ocean ascidification and warming events and the potential acclimation to future climate change scenarios. This project is creating a lot of excitement due to the CCA geological record being inconsistent with current knowledge of their sensitivity toward high levels of carbon dioxide so hopefully the four-year project will provide insight into CCA ability to respond to rapid environmental change.
