Developing a Genetic Toolkit to Assess Stress Levels in Coral Reefs (GU)
Develop a genetic toolkit to detect, identify and quantify stress before the onset of physical symptoms in two of the most common and important coral species on Guam. Project will help reef managers identify reefs under stress, pinpoint the causative stressors, and target resilient individuals to propagate for restoration actions.
