This website was designed for the Ecology of Atlantic Shores class at Clark University. Our class traveled to the Bermuda Biological Station for Research to learn about coral reefs, and to develop our own curiosity with a research project. The following pages are the result of my discoveries there. Feel free to visit the class website where you can check out other student's projects.
