Funding Opportunity: Coral Adaptation Challenge

Coral Reef Alliance

The Coral Reef Alliance and one of its loyal funders are pleased to announce a call for proposals for the Coral Adaptation Challenge.

At the recent International Coral Reef Symposium in Honolulu, Hawai‘i many speakers raised concerns about whether the rates of evolution by natural selection will be fast enough to keep up with the rate of current and future environmental change. The answer to the question of whether corals can adapt quickly enough is critically important for evaluating the merit of alternative conservation strategies.The Coral Reef Alliance is seeking expert involvement in a project that is designed to synthesize this rapidly advancing area of research.
