"Diana Steller"

I am currently on the research faculty at Moss Landing Marine Laboratories and the Diving Safety Officer. My research interests include the ecology of temperate reefs and subtropical carbonate rhodolith beds with and emphasis on macroalgal ecology algal physiology and species interactions. I have been working in the Gulf of California for the past 20 years. I am particularly interested in the role that macroalgae play as a substrate and food resource in subtidal communities and how algal dynamics influence community dynamics. Additionally, I am interested in the growth and establishment of carbonate reefs both past, present and future.
