Research Interests

Dr Harley studies the impact of climate change on nearshore marine environments, with an emphasis on benthic (bottom-dwelling) plants and animals. His lab is interested in how climatic factors, such as temperature, pH, and salinity interact with biological relationships such as predation and facilitation to create ecological patterns in time and space.
