The Porter Lab      
at the university of Georgia

Welcome to The Porter Lab!

    Our laboratory focuses on coral reef ecology, coral conservation, and diseases of coral. In addition, we are active in a number of side projects on butterflies from Georgia and Costa Rica.

    The tabs above lead you to our ongoing research and teaching, plus PDF’s of Dr. Porter’s reprints.
