Zooplankton Ecology-Omics… And More!!!
Dr. Blanco-Bercial is a zooplankton ecologist who is investigating the zooplankton community at the Bermuda Atlantic Time-Series (BATS) site in the Sargasso Sea. His research integrates classical morphological analysis with molecular approaches to describe the temporal and vertical distribution of species, while also addressing broader spatial and temporal questions related to zooplankton phylogeny, population genetics and dispersal.

Coral Reef Resilience and Climate Change: Is the future of corals reefs down deep?
Dr. Goodbody-Gringley is a reef ecologist focused on understanding how coral reef ecosystems function and maintain biodiversity. Her research combines large-scale in situ
ecological surveys, laboratory based manipulative experiments, and molecular ecology to address questions related to the health, evolution, and resilience of coral reefs, ranging from shallow reefs to the mesophoticzone. Current projects include assessing biodiversity and ecosystem function on mesophoticreefs, impacts of invasive lionfish, and reproductive patterns of corals across reef zones.
