Emma Marangon explored coral reef holobiont responses to future climate through an integrative approach. She found that parental exposure to climate stressors can influence the offspring microbiome, and host-symbiont nutrient recycling is a key player in the stability of coral reef symbioses. Her research deepens our understanding of complex symbiotic interactions, providing important insights for targeting future reef intervention strategies.
