PhDs that will work to better understand how coral reefs function....The
Central Caribbean Marine Institute (CCMI) has granted Marilyn Brandt, a
University of Miami PhD student, the CCMI Coral Reef Fellowship....CCMI is
also assisting research by Aletta T Yniguez, a native of the Philippines, and
Fulbright Scholar at the University of Miami. Using her work on Little Cayman,
she plans to develop a computer model that shows 3D macroalgae growing as they
respond to their environment of light, nutrients and the space around them."....[read

McManus, director of the National Center for Caribbean Coral Reef Research at

"We saw areas where for tens or hundreds of kilometers, there was 90
percent death. Total global coral mortality may have been as high as 20
percent." ....[read more on this at
