MSc Student

I am a Master’s student at BARCO LAB with special interest on the long-term effect of MPAs on coral reefs. My principal interest focuses on evaluating coral ecosystem structure, their conservation and management.
Coral reefs are highly studied ecosystems but despite this efforts the understanding and following of temporal change patterns is not clear. My research focusses on studying the patterns of change in the benthic communities of the Marine Protected Area of Puerto Morelos for the last 20 years
