Competitive interactions between scleractinian corals and macroalgae

Coral reefs are one of the world’s most biologically diverse and productive ecosystems. If they decline over time, that also means we’ll see a reduction in an abundance of other plant life, fish and biodiversity in our oceans. Climate change, as well as human activity like overfishing, fertilizer and chemical use run-off from agriculture and industry is threatening our coral reefs. Researchers are investigating how this decline, coupled with the growth of macroalgae is affecting our live corals in Singapore.

Population ecology, breeding and conservation of the Horseshoe Crab

Horseshoe crabs are remarkable living fossil that evolved 450 million years ago. Two of the four living species in the world are found here in Singapore. The mangrove horseshoe crab population is on a steady, alarming decline because of land reclamation and coastal development in Singapore. Local researchers are studying how these crabs breed, forage and migrate, so that they can be bred in captivity and protected from the threat of extinction.
