An international team will carry out ambitious and innovative in situ experiments for ten days using species that live at the natural analogues for future conditions in Bouraké (New Caledonia).

An interdisciplinary approach will identify the mechanisms by which corals and reef-associated species may have used to thrive in sub-optimal conditions.

Using reciprocal transplantation and transgeneration experiments applied to species living in this specific habitat, SuperNatural will characterize the physiological and evolutionary mechanisms that coral reefs, sponges, coral algae and fish may deploy to cope with future changes.
