MarineGEO ARMS 13-27 Jan, 2019

January 17th 2019

MarineGEO is a major biodiversity assessment project that uses settlement structures, lovingly referred to as ARMS, to build up and monitor biodiversity. We inventory the larger stuff with more traditional methods (point counts, taxonomy, photos and barcoding) and the tiny stuff with high throughput sequencing. It’s a pretty huge effort but it’s one of the tools currently in use to help build up the inventory and genetic database of marine biodiversity in Hong Kong, which we hope will be useful to all Hong Kong marine researchers. If you want to find out more about the project please visit https://marinegeo.si.edu/hong-kong-china.
