Title: Coral Bleaching


1
Coral Bleaching
  • A Scientific Investigation By
  • Sherrie Engram
  • Matthew Grambow
  • Emily Jeng
  • Adam Rynalski
  • Johanna Said

2
During Last Weeks Lab
  • We learned how to test Zooxanthellae density by
    using several different pieces of lab equipment.
  • Our group plans to use the skills learned during
    this lab for collecting our Zooxanthellae data in
    our own experiment.

Lab Data
4
Proposed Experiment
  • The Participation of Calcium in Heat-Induced
    Coral Bleaching

5
Questions
  • Does Elevated Temperatures Effect the
    Intracellular Calcium Levels In Coral?

6
  • We Will Test the Effects of Intracellular Calcium
    Levels In Coral at Three Different Temperature
    Levels.
  • 25C, 35C, 45C

7
Hypothesis
  • 1. Null Hypothesis The Corals grown in the Heat
    Induced environments will have the same density
    and Calcium levels as corals grown in normal
    conditions.

8
Hypothesis
  • 2. The Corals grown in the Heat Induced
    environments will not have the same density and
    Calcium levels as corals grown in normal
    conditions.

9
Experimental Standards
  • Experimental and control corals will be
    maintained in aquaria under standard salinity,
    light and temperature.
  • Zooxanthellae density will be measured once a
    week for four weeks. Along with Calcium levels.
