Evaluation of patterns and consequences of disturbance events for marine reef fish

My research focuses on a species’ adaptive capacity (the ability of a species to persist despite changes from disturbance). Due to climate change, predictions for the future suggest an increasing intensity of extreme weather events making the adaptive capacity of many species unclear. Intertidal/shallow subtidal species are frequently subjected to varying, often intense, levels of wave action. To understand the potential consequences of disturbance events, I am evaluating wave-induced water flow and corresponding morphological traits, behavior, distribution
