Sea Fan Research Scientists and Summer Graduate Interns Arrive

Gorgonian soft corals are very abundant across Bermuda's coral reefs.

We are gearing up for field season, a bit late this year due to the 11th ICRS which we attended.

Gorgonian corals are to be surveyed across the platform at our many sites. Two graduate interns are also arriving this week to initiate ecological field experiments that will focus on the processes that cause patterns of variation in coral and fish abundance across the lagoonal patch reefs.

Stay tuned as the researchers tell their stories on the BREAM blog in the coming days and weeks.
