Ocean Acidification Tropical Fish
Philip Munday is a Professor at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies and School of Marine and Tropical Biology, at James Cook University. His research program focuses on understanding and predicting the impacts of climate change on populations and communities of reef fishes, both directly through changes in the physical environment and indirectly through effects on coral reef habitat. Using laboratory and field-based experiments he is investigating the effects of increased temperature and ocean acidification on reef fish populations and testing their capacity for acclimation and adaptation to a rapidly changing environment. He has also conducted extensive research on the role of habitat in structuring reef fish communities, from the scale of individual coral colonies up to whole ocean basins. He is an authority on the impacts of ocean acidification on marine fish.
