Cody Clements, Teasley Postdoctoral Fellow, and Mark Hay, professor and Teasley Chair, traveled to Mo’orea, French Polynesia, in the tropical Pacific Ocean, where they planted coral gardens differing in coral species diversity to evaluate the relative importance of mutualistic versus competitive interactions between the corals as they grew.
