The aim of this ongoing study is to understand the invertebrate and alga biota growing on our artificial reef, Temple Reef. The objectives of this study are three-fold
- To identify and log the invertebrate and algal population prevalent in our study sites.
- To investigate which materials facilitate invertebrate recruitment and settlement, so as to aid in future reef construction methods.
- To observe trends, if any, between recruitment density and environmental factors such as turbidity, depth, temperature, pH, etc.
