Heat stress alters coral photosymbiont health and viral abundance

Dinoflagellate Endosymbiont (Family Symbiodiniaceae) Community Dynamics During Coral Bleaching

Research Areas

The Correa lab applies interdisciplinary approaches to quantify how microorganisms influence hosts and ecosystem-level processes, particularly under environmental stress. Our primary research interests include the diversity and evolutionary histories of marine microorganisms; the context-dependent roles of dinoflagellate symbionts, bacteria and viruses in host health and disease; and the influence of microbes on ecosystem function and persistence.
