The silent sea is responding swiftly to global climate change. Check out this video about a research conducted by @HKUSBS and @SWIMSHKU about how some species evolve more rapidly to cope with future ocean acidification . invidious.fdn.fr/D9o78ZsaDuo #ocean #science

Hard to believe my PhD mentor Professor Brian Morton @SWIMSHKU @HKUniversity has left us for almost one year…Alway amazed by re-viewing the beautiful and micro-CT-like handdrawings in his papers and books.🐚 nitter.fdn.fr/elvisgbxu/status…

@VrikoY Vriko Yu, PhD student @SWIMSHKU and CEO of #archiREEF, a company she co-created during her studies. She believes that time has come to finally act for corals conservation as she develops new 3D-printed tiles to help their restoration in warm oceans!

@ocean_roisin Róisín Hayden, PhD student @SWIMSHKU She is investigating how ecological interactions structure the coral microbiome and what it means for their resilience in a warming and acidified ocean, using molecular techniques. A Twitter professional!

@sneha108ss Sneha Suresh, PhD Candidate @SWIMSHKU , investigating the molecular responses of fish (especially 🤡fish!) to ocean acidification. Bioinformatics wizard. Trying to conserve Nemo, one genome at a time.

Honoured to be part of this review in @ELSenviron examining the roles that macrofauna play in the fragmentation of macro to micro and nano plastics! Led by @mandydrms with @SCannicci and @cnot_paleo_hku it’s available for free for the next ~40 days @LabImeco @SWIMSHKU
Excited to share with you the first paper from my Mphil is out with @LyleVorsprung @SCannicci @cnot_paleo_hku ! Read on and find out more about #plastic fragmentation associated with aquatic and terrestrial macrofauna 🦞🦀🪱 Check it out at 👇🏻 authors.elsevier.com/c/1eayX…

Biogeographic breaks are fascinating natural labs to study the influence of spatio-temporal #environmental variability shaping local #adaptation, #genetic & phenotypic differences in tolerances to env #stress in nat #populations. @SWIMSHKU @HKUSBS onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/…

Mangrove crabs are great model animals to study the impact of #ClimateChange on invertebrates. Check out our paper on #ASLO_LETTERS led by @LyleVorsprung and Francesca Porri. @SWIMSHKU @UNI_FIRENZE
Thermal bottlenecks and the response to #ClimateChange in intertidal ectotherms are not clearly defined. This paper presents a conceptual model illustrating the thermal sensitivity of intertidal crabs. 🦀 ow.ly/VCpq50HvV9J @LyleVorsprung @SCannicci @aslo_org #ASLO_LETTERS
