This research theme focuses on the community dynamics and ecosystem functioning of shallow and deep-sea reef ecosystems, including relations with their physical and chemical environment.
Key questions are:
Using a combination of field studies, in situ and ex situ experimental approaches, this theme will provide keys for scientists and policy makers in how coral reef ecosystems function and how these precious ecosystems may change in the future in response to climate change and coastal management.
