|Bioerosion of Corals in Hong Kong
Despite the small marine area and heavily populated coastal areas in Hong Kong, there are many coral communities with high biodiversity. However, many human activities are threatening the coral communities in Hong Kong and sedimentation is one of them. I am interested in investigating the effects of sedimentation and pollution on bioerosion of corals, hypothesizing that higher sedimentation rate promotes the growth of bioeroders in corals, which damages the integrity of the coral skeleton.
