Research Organisation
The Marine Spatial Ecology Lab is part of the School of Biosciences at the University of Exeter. MSEL currently comprises of nine researchers working on various projects in coral reef ecology and remote sensing.

The Marine Spatial Ecology Lab conducts several types of research, each of which has an explicit spatial focus. These are:

  • Developing remote sensing as a tool to acquire spatial information in coastal areas.
  • Make use of remote sensing outputs to investigate the physical and ecological processes determining health, dynamics and diversity of coral reefs.
  • Improve the management of coral reefs through marine reserve design.
  • Examine the spatial ecology of coral reef ecosystems from scales of millimetres (e.g. coral-algal interactions) to hundreds of kilometres (variations in beta diversity throughout the Caribbean).

    MSEL is also a partner with IMM Ltd in the Coral Ecosystems, Livelihoods and Policy Group (CELP), an inter-disciplinary partnership of specialists in coral reef resources, reef dependent people and poverty.
