2018 Has been designated the third International Year of the Reef (IYOR) to strengthen awareness globally about the value of, and threats to, coral reefs and associated ecosystems. This talk will cover the effects of environmental stress, adaptation and evolution in extreme environments and how that can help us understand climate change mitigation. And lastly, some of our latest modelling of geoengineering solar radiation management for corals in the Caribbean.
