VC Research and Teaching Fellowship
Research Group Leaders

Peter's group studies the effects of climate change on coral reefs and looks for practical ways in which reefs can be conserved more effectively. Members of the group study the ecology of coral reefs, model the effects of stress on reefs, and design more effective ways to use marine protected areas and fisheries restrictions to improve reef health. Theoretical interests include system resilience, the role of biodiversity in ecosystem functioning, and linking diversity to ecosystem services. The group's research also takes place across the Pacific and Caribbean. More information can be found at
