About the event
With this webinar we aim to reach divers, underwater enthusiasts and early career biology students and researchers. We will cover a broad spectrum of topics related to coral reefs, sustainable fishing and marine conservation. You don't need to be a scientist to join but we rather want to bring science to the public.
For the 9th session, Dr. Rian Prasetia, former PhD Student of University of the Ryukyus, Japan and former Postdoctoral Researcher at National University Singapore and French National Research Institute for Development, will take us into the fascinating world of deep reefs: Mesophotic Coral Ecosystems (reefs between 30 and 150 m depth) are hypothesised to contribute to recovery of degraded shallow reefs through recruitment of sexually produced larvae, referred to as Deep Reef Refugia Hypothesis (DRRH). In this talk, Rian will share his research in Okinawa, Japan, examining mesophotic corals’ genetic diversity, reproductive biology, and physiological acclimation to assess the validity of the DRRH.
The webinar will be held via Zoom. Please register to receive the login details.
