Summaries

Summary Sentence: "Smells Like Home: How Chemical Cues Influence Important Decisions on Coral Reefs" - Danielle Dixson, PhD - Georgia Tech

Full Summary: The Petit Institute Breakfast Club seminar series was started with the spirit of the Institute's interdisciplinary mission in mind and started to feature local Petit Institute faculty member's research in a seminar format. Faculty are often asked to speak at other universities and conferences, but rarely present at their home institution, this seminar series is an attempt to close that gap. The Petit Institute Breakfast Club is open to anyone in the bio-community.

"Smells Like Home: How Chemical Cues Influence Important Decisions on Coral Reefs"

Danielle Dixson, PhD
Assistant Professor
School of Biology
Georgia Tech

I focus on four interconnected research areas: the use of sensory cues in settlement site selection; connectivity of the marine environment; behavioral interactions between species; and the effect of anthropogenic changes, such as ocean acidification and terrestrial runoff, on the behavior of marine organisms. These efforts are linked by a common theme: understanding how marine animals sense their environment, how they are able to use this information to make decisions on optimal habitat choice and consequences these behavioral choices have on marine conservation and management in a changing environment.
