NOVEMBER 15, 2017
The coral reefs of the Kimberley are some of the world’s most unique, diverse, and pristine. Yet, little is known of their distribution and ecology. Their remoteness means they have escaped pressures such as pollution and overfishing. However, their condition is threatened by emerging pressures, particularly global climate change.
In this talk Dr James Gilmour will explore the diversity of coral reefs within the Kimberley, from the turbid coastal reefs to the oceanic atolls, their capacity to thrive in naturally dynamic settings, and how this capacity is being eroded by climate change.
