Small But Mighty: How Microbes Influence the Future of Coral Reefs

By Dr. Jennifer Sneed

Date: May 6, 2020
Affiliation: Smithsonian Marine Station
Location: Zoom

Dr. Sneed is a research biologist specializing in the roles of microbial life in mediating the ecological interactions of other marine organisms. She is particularly interested in the role of microbial communities in the recruitment processes of invertebrate larvae as well as the chemical cues involved in structuring host microbiomes and their effect on host health and ecology. Dr. Sneed will be discussing her research on the chemically mediated influence of marine bacteria on coral larval settlement.
