Science Cafe Description:
Coral reefs are the most diverse marine ecosystems. As spectacular as they look, with large numbers of corals and fish, most of the diversity occurs within the matrix of the reef in an intricate labyrinth of nooks and crevices that permeate the reef fabric. Learn about the fascinating and bizarre organisms that inhabit the matrix, how little we know about marine life and what the future holds.
