Danielle Dixson
University of Tampa /James Cook University
Research Interest: Marine Biology – Coral reefs

Danielle studies the role that sense of smell plays in the settlement behavior of coral reef fish larvae, particularly in clownfish species.  Danielle will investigate the extent to which these olfactory cues are used by larvae for adult habitat selection, and the differences that occur among species.
