Travelled to Honolulu for the 13th International Coral Reefs Symposium to present my poster titled: “BOLSTERED PHYSICAL DEFENSES UNDER NUTRIENT ENRICHED CONDITIONS MAY FACILITATE A MACROALGAL SPECIES IN THE SOUTH PACIFIC”
Rachel J. Clausing, Sarah Joy Bittick, Caitlin R. Fong, and Peggy Fong
Sediments influence accumulation of two macroalgal species through novel but differing interactions with nutrients and herbivory
