Evaluation of MPA Designs That Protect Highly Mobile Megafauna Now and Under Climate Change Scenarios

We study how large-scale marine protected area designs can be improved by taking animal time and space movement into consideration.

Mapped Coral Mortality and Refugia in an Archipelago-Scale Marine Heat Wave

We develop and apply an airborne coral mortality mapping approach to identify reef refugia in a major marine heat wave across the Hawaiian Islands.

Early Successional Trajectory of Benthic Community in an Uninhabited Reef System Three Years After Mass Coral Bleaching

We track the recovery of reef communities after a mass coral mortality to better understand how a benthic community recovers.

Spatial Distribution and Sources of Nutrients at Two Coastal Developments in South Kohala, Hawai’i

A study documenting how nutrients are distributed within coral reef developments for better understanding of how to make coral reefs more resilient to stressors.

Movement and Retention of Derelict Fishing Nets in Northwestern Hawaiian Island Reefs

We track abandoned fishing nets with satellite-transmitting buoys to better understand where fishing litter ends up to aid in debris removal missions.

Prey-Size Plastics Are Invading Larval Fish Nurseries

Ocean conditions dictate food availability and govern survivorship, yet little is known about the habitat preferences of larval fish during this highly vulnerable life-history stage.

Can Herbivore Management Increase the Persistence of Indo-Pacific Coral Reefs?

With a focus on Indo-Pacific coral reefs, we review what is known about the underlying processes of herbivory and coral-algal competition that ultimately affect the ability of corals to grow, persist, and replenish themselves. We then critically assess evidence of effectiveness or otherwise of herbivore management within marine protected areas (MPAs) to better understand why many MPAs have not improved outcomes for corals, and more importantly to identify the circumstances in which that form of management would be most likely to be effective.
