Abstract

Bettina Glasl established the first microbial baseline for the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) and quantified the diagnostic potential of multiple reef microbiomes. She found that the seawater microbiome was the most suitable microbiome for a microbial indicator program. Her research provides a framework for the integration of microbial observatories in reef monitoring programs.
