Paul Barber

Dr. Barber is a professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of California, Los Angeles, where he teaches marine science. Fifteen years ago, Barber began studying marine biodiversity in Indonesia, which is part of a greater region known as the Coral Triangle. The Coral Triangle is home to a marine environment so diverse that it rivals that of an Amazonian rainforest. Despite its biodiversity, Dr. Barber realized that this was one of the least-studied marine environments on the planet, as well as one of the most threatened.

One of Dr. Barber’s goals is to bring awareness to the diversity of marine life found in the Coral Triangle to the global community. The Coral Triangle exhibit at the Aquarium of the Pacific is made possible through a grant from the Alice C. Tyler Perpetual Trust and will be debuting on April 1, 2014.
