PROJECT PHOENIX

Towards a new coral taxonomy

Taxonomy underpins all questions in biology and ecology and a sound taxonomy is essential for the effective management of biological resources.

Project Phoenix is an international multidisciplinary collaboration among researchers interested in the taxonomy, systematics and evolution of corals. The current focus is on the order Scleractinia (hard corals) and the goal is to develop a robust taxonomy using knowledge and technologies both old and new.
