Carolyn used a comparative approach to investigate the life history energetics and effects of future ocean warming on the epaulette shark (Hemiscyllium ocellatum), a small, benthic shark endemic to the Great Barrier Reef. She found that early life stages and reproduction are most vulnerable to climate change in the future.
