Erin presented her three-minute talk “Coral Disease Intervention Strategies and Coral Mucus Community Composition” where she discussed her upcoming research regarding corals in southeast Florida affected by Scleractinian Tissue Loss Disease and the methods being implemented to mitigate mortality from this disease. Ian presented his poster “Characterizing the Impacts of Scleractinian Tissue Loss Disease with 3D Photogrammetry”, describing his research to characterize progression rates of this disease using 3D photogrammetry on fate tracked coral colonies in southeast Florida. Both were awarded with Outstanding Student Presentation Awards at the end of the symposium, which will help support their future research efforts. Congratulations Ian and Erin!
