Les Kaufman - All coral reefs are local
Click to hide meeting description

Can coral reefs be kept alive in US waters in the face of global climate change? Learn about research that is being done to grow corals and restore coral reefs, including work with elkhorn and staghorn corals in Florida.

Les Kaufman, Professor in the Boston University Marine Program, is an evolutionary ecologist who studies basic processes that drive the creation, collapse, and conservation of aquatic species diversity on coral reefs and tropical great lakes. His interests are increasingly turned toward clinical research on the dynamics of human-natural coupled systems, to create supporting science for global sustainability and climate change adaptation.
