"Coral reef fish in a changing world: evolutionary potential and ecological limitations"

Philip L. Munday and Jennifer M. Donelson

ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies, James Cook University, Townsville, QLD Australia.

Many short-term experiments have demonstrated the potential impacts of ocean warming and acidification on marine organisms. However, longer-term experiments are needed to test the capacity for acclimation and adaptation to these stressors. In this talk we will describe unique multigenerational experiments being used to test the effects of warming and acidification on coral reef fishes and explore their capacity for thermal plasticity and adaptation.(...)
