Applied Biodiversity Science in the MesoAmerican Reefs


Pablo Granados-Dieseldorff’s research in marine fisheries conservation biology in the Gulf of Honduras was featured in a marine conservation publication distributed to more than 10,000 people directly involved in conservation science worldwide. In the past year, he designed surveys and created collection forms for fisheries data. He analyzed time-series data and created stock assessments for three marine protected areas (Port Honduras Marine Reserve, Gladden Spit and Silk Cayes Marine Reserve, Laughing Bird Marine Reserve, and Sapodillas Cayes Marine Reserve). Pablo is developing with TIDE and SEA a stakeholder-centered fishery stock assessment protocol for the southern Mesoamerican Reef, a marine biodiversity hotspot of global importance.

Address Goals

The research of ABS-IGERT Trainees provides scientific data and professional collaboration needed to protect biodiversity while also meeting the needs of people. This research integrates data from social and biological sciences, building new understanding in both major research themes of our IGERT: Ecological Functions and Biodiversity, and Communities and Governance.
