My PhD project focuses on the effects of ocean acidification on different aspects of fishes' reproduction.

Reproduction sustains individual fitness and population replenishment, but is a very energy-expensive process. It is regulated by a defined range of environmental conditions and cues: thus, it appears to be sensitive to reduced seawater pH and rising temperatures.

Using species with male parental care I will study the effects of ocean acidification through a behavioural, physiological and genetic approach.
