Mr Mike Buckingham is a postgraduate research student within Ocean and Earth Science, National Oceanography Centre Southampton at the University of Southampton.

Studied Natural Sciences (Environmental Science) at The Open University (UK), completing a final project which investigated the phenological changes induced in two species of terrestrial plants as a consequence of changes in temperature and photoperiod regimes.

Studied MSc in Oceanography (Marine Biology & Ecology) at University of Southampton (National Oceanography Centre), completing a final project which investigated the impact of benthic algae on the nutrient status of seawater and how this affected the bleaching susceptibility and survivorship of reef corals.

Research interests

  • Coral reef ecology

Research project: The impacts of multiple stressors on reef corals

Laboratory based experiments examine the effects of benthic and planktonic algae on the nutrient status of seawater and how this may subsequently influence the bleaching susceptibility of reef corals.

Coral skeletons as records of environmental change.

Laboratory based experiments and field observations will be used to examine the different isotopic signatures and morphological structures recorded in the skeletons of reef corals as a consequence of changes in temperature, pH and seawater nutrient status.
