2022 Lizard Island Critical Research Grant award to Project Phoenix members

Andrew Baird, Tom Bridge, Pete Cowman and Josh Madin have just been awarded the 2022 Lizard Island Critical Research Grant to re-visit the taxonomy of the reef-building corals of Lizard Island, Australia.

For an excellent summary of the project by Dr Anne Hoggett, co-director of the Lizard Island Research Station, see the link below.

The team are conducting similar work in the Palm and Keppel Islands, so if all goes well a robust and consistent taxonomy for corals on the Great Barrier Reef is not too far away.
