Brief description Coral reefs are threatened by climate change, but the effects of sea-level rise on wide, shallow reef flats are rarely investigated. This project will examine how the ecology of fish on reef flats varies with tidal state, how these changes alter food webs over tidal cycles, and the implications of sea-level rise leading to a 'permanent high tide'.
