Coral reefs in Hawaii and across the globe continue to decline in health due to intensifying climate change, resource extraction, and pollution. Although the future looks bleak, certain corals and reefs are not just surviving, but thriving in conditions that kill others. Dr. Ruth Gates will unveil the complex biology that underpins this natural variation in the response of corals to stress. She will then discuss how this knowledge can be harnessed to develop tools that build resilience on reefs, arresting and improving the prognosis for coral reefs. Dr. Gates is the director of and a researcher at the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology, University of Hawaii at Manoa.
