Narissa Bax

About me
Narissa is a benthic ecologist specialising in Antarctic and Patagonian coral reef habitats. Cold-water corals are sensitive to the potential threats of climate change, and are easily damaged  by trawl fisheries. Antarctic corals often form dense, but isolated aggregations, and therefore their ability to recover from disturbance is limited. She has conducted research exploring the dispersal capabilites of corals in these regions, in order to determine how resilient they are to future threats.
