Dan Exton

Dan Exton has been working with Operation Wallacea for a number of years now, carrying out research into a range of topics regarding coral reef ecology. After focusing on the functional ecology of reef fish species, and the environmental impacts of subsistence fisheries techniques, he has recently completed his PhD titled ‘Isoprene Production in the Marine Environment’. Isoprene is produced by autotrophs as a thermotolerance mechanism, and Dan is hoping to fill the large gap in the literature regarding marine sources of this important gas by investigating the level of production in various taxonomic groups and the mechanisms behind emission rates.
