Distinguished Lecture Series: The 'Choral' Reef Fish of Hawaiʻi
An accomplished professor of Biology at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, Dr. Tim Tricas studies the behavior and sensory biology of sharks, rays, and coral reef fish. His work involving scuba, underwater rebreathers and digital technologies has great potential use for coral reef management and conservation, while his most recent research focuses on how the fish brain processes natural sounds used for communication. His lecture will highlight his library of reef fish sounds, and how new applications of this remote bio-acoustic technique may be useful to monitor the health, degradation or recovery of coral reefs over large areas while reducing the need for direct observations by divers.
