Lisa Greer – Coral Reefs & Climate Change

Lisa Greer, Assistant Professor of Geology, has been studying the dramatic population decrease in Caribbean populations of staghorn coral (Acroporoa cericonis) that began in the 1980s.  Fossilized specimens of the coral indicate that the die-off may not be caused solely by climate change.  The fossil record indicates that warmer temperatures have had little effect over the last 500,000 years that staghorn has been a major reef builder.

Greer hopes to be doing research this summer on the causes of the die-off in the Caribbean with W&L students in the R.E. Lee Research Program.
