Ligia Collado-Vides

FCE Site Role
Project Collaborator

Florida International University

My research interest is primarily to work with an interdisciplinary approach to understand shifts from coral, and seagrass dominated communities into macroalgae dominated communities as a result of changes at global and local scales. My specific focus is on the distribution and long-term dynamics of algal communities in the Florida Keys, Florida Bay and Biscayne Bay; and changes in dominance between macroalgae and corals in the Mexican Caribbean.
