The Coral Restoration Consortium’s Genetics Working Group presents a webinar on their recently-published paper Considerations for maximizing the adaptive potential of restored coral populations in the western Atlantic. This paper provides practical advice for restoration practitioners and resource managers when making decisions about what species to work with, how many genotypes to include in nurseries, and how to design outplant plots to increase the chances of successful cross-fertilization. Dr. Iliana Baums, Dr. Mikhail Matz and Dr. Margaret Miller provide a summary of the working group’s suggestions and a robust question and answer session.

This webinar series is co-hosted by the Coral Restoration Consortium and the Reef Resilience Network.
