Welcome to the website for the Coral Reef Ecosystems (CRE) Laboratory, School of Biological Sciences, The University of Queensland, Australia. Under the guidance of Professor Ove Hoegh-Guldberg and Associate Professor Sophie Dove, the lab is conducting research into a variety of topics related to coral reef ecosystems. The lab is part of the Australian Research Council Center of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies and receives considerable support from this important center within Australian science. The lab currently hosts 25 people which includes Post-Docs, PhD students, Laboratory Associates and Professional staff. This website gives access to their personal profiles, research, and peer-reviewed publications.

Climate change has become of increasing concern across the globe. Recently Ove Hoegh-Guldberg spoke with Stuart Diver during a The Elements pod cast about this important topic. Entitled “Climate Emergency” the podcast can be listened to HERE.

This 360 degree video shows the work our lab group undertook at Heron Island. It shows our staff working on the aquarium deck and the deployment of our in-situ respirometry chambers. Best viewed with Windows Explorer or Chrome or using the YouTube app on your smart phone/iPad.

GCI researchers had the opportunity to interview Sir David Attenborough for a new short film on the impacts of climate change on the Great Barrier Reef. The One-Two Punch of Climate Change has been entered in GetUp’s #ReefReels short film competition. Our film has made it into the top five finalists and will be screened at TropFest!

Also listen to a recent interview of Ove by Jonica Newby for the ABC Science Show on May 9, 2020.
