Project details


Determine the abundance and biomass of the invasive macroalgae species, Turbinaria and Sargassum. Then, identify marine species located on random samples of each species. Turbinaria decreases fish abundance and biodiversity, competing with native algae and coral for space and resources. Determine the effect on biodiversity if Turbinaria were to be removed from an ecosystem entirely. Under the guidance of Maya Lin, the ISP class will conduct transect data collection in Baie Vaiori, located in Mo'orea. The objective is to gather data on the spatial occupancy of algae. Additionally, algae will be gathered to bring back to the lab where they will be examined for any residing organisms.
