Involvements
Category Project Activity Link Abstract Link
LTER Core Research Area Primary Production Plant growth in most ecosystems forms the base or "primary" component of the food web. The amount and type of plant growth in an ecosystem helps to determine the amount and kind of animals (or "secondary" productivity) that can survive there. more
LTER Core Research Area Populations A population is a group of organisms of the same species. Like canaries in the coalmine, changes in populations of organisms can be important indicators of environmental changes. more
LTER Core Research Area Organic Matter The entire ecosystem relies on the recycling of organic matter (and the nutrients it contains), including dead plants, animals, and other organisms. Decomposition of organic matter and its movement through the ecosystem is an important component of the food web. more
LTER Core Research Area Inorganic Nutrients Nitrogen, phosphorus and other mineral nutrients are cycled through the ecosystem by way of decay and disturbances such as fire and flood. In excessive quantities nitrogen and other nutrients can have far-reaching and harmful effects on the environment. more
MCR Core Activity Process-Oriented Field Studies A series of process-oriented field studies motivated by our initial focused questions have been initiated to explore gaps in our understanding of physical and biological processes and events that affect structure, function and dynamics of the reef ecosystem of Moorea; additional integration is achieved by focusing on common model systems.
MCR Core Activity Time Series Program A comprehensive set of spatially explicit time series measurements was designed and implemented (during Year 1) to describe decadal trends in the reef ecosystem and forcing functions on a landscape scale.
Research Theme Ocean Acidification A fundamental goal of the MCR is to advance understanding that enables accurate forecasts of the behavior of coral reef ecosystems to environmental forcing. To this end, we seek to understand the mechanistic basis of change in coral reefs by determining how they are influenced by the press drivers to which they are increasingly being subjected, especially those associated with an increasing degree of ocean acidification.
MCR-LTER Working Group Bio-Physical Coupling Many of the features defining coral reefs are products of the interaction of biological and physical processes acting over multiple spatio-temporal and functional scales. We are exploring the scale-dependence of physical processes around the island of Moorea, focusing initially on waves and water fluxes and temperature characteristics at several scales.
MCR-LTER Working Group Population and Community Dynamics Coral reefs have exceptionally high levels of biodiversity that generate complex webs of interacting species. Our ability to forecast population and community dynamics requires greater understanding of the manner by which individuals and species interact within coral reef ecosystems.
