Tullia Terraneo studied the species richness, taxonomy and historical biogeography of Porites, one of the most important reef corals in the tropics. She found that Porites diversity needs to be reconsidered and the taxonomy of the genus revised. Finally, she found several species new to taxonomy that are awaiting description. This work increases our knowledge regarding coral reef biodiversity and will help guide future conservation strategies.
