Abstract:

The long-term goal of this research is to gain an understanding of the nature and significance of fluorescence and reflectance characteristics of benthic marine organisms in general, and coral reef cnidarians in particular. We wish to determine 1 how biological processes act to produce the optical properties and 2 how optical measurements can be used to provide insight into biological state or process.
