John Pandolfi heads the Marine Palaeoecology Lab in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Queensland. Lab activities are directed at understanding the recent past history of coral reef communities from around the world, including effects of humans and climate change from living communities to those over the past hundreds to couple of million years. Recent PhD projects include understanding ecological dynamics of sub-tropical coral reef communities, and reconstructing Great Barrier Reef communities before and after European colonization of Australia. Long-term ecological studies continue to be an important component of our research.
