Are some corals better than others?

Coral reefs are important ecosystems that are currently experiencing massive global declines due to a variety of factors.  The Matz lab at UT Austin looks for certain corals that may be more resistant to harmful environmental changes in hopes of securing a better future for our reefs. Come and learn about these beautiful ocean creatures!

Science Under the Stars is a free public outreach lecture series in Austin, Texas. Events start at 7:30pm outdoors at Brackenridge Field Laboratory, 2907 Lake Austin Blvd, Austin, Texas 78703.

    Hi, we were looking forward to your event on 9/18. Due to weather condition we did not go but we did not get a notification that it was canceled either. Did the event get postponed to 9/25?

    I’m wondering what the schedule looks like for Fall 2014?
    It seems like it hasn’t been posted yet; I’d like to plan for these dates but would need to know in advance. It didn’t seem like the Sept. 18 session got much publicity.

    I was wondering if you knew how I could contact Rachel Wright. I’m the girl that went up and asked about polyps and I wanted to ask some follow up questions.
