Competition and Biofouling

Everything on our planet can essentially be classified as symbiosis or competition. This course dives into the dense world of competition on our coral reefs. Students will gain a comprehensive understanding of the different competitions between trophic levels, and learn how to categorize different types of competition. By decreasing the competition and biofouling that corals face on a daily basis, we can give them a leg up when we actively try to restore our reefs with resilience. This course is a partial fulfillment of the Advanced Ecological Monitoring Plan.
