Acropora palmata is an important indicator species of barrier reefs in the tropical Atlantic. Fire coral are also abundant in the Bahamas.
To begin my presentation I will give background information on the Lemon shark, followed by an explanation of the project and how it works, and then I will explain the results, and finally analyze and discuss the importance of the results and how it relates to us. The project inherently produces several charts and graphs that I will be able to explain and show to the class, along with pictures of the Lemon Shark. This project should produce plenty of information and will be sufficient enough to fill the time requirement. Not to mention it is very interesting as I will be producing unique information based on scientific numbers.
Below I have listed seven sources for background information on the Lemon Shark and its population concerns. I will not be using these sites to populate the PVA graph because it requires scientific journals to produce accurate information. However I will be using these websites to learn more about the Lemon Shark so I can provide plenty of background information.
