Latest Coral bleaching Stories
Disease can exacerbate coral bleaching, while bleaching leads to increased disease prevalence.
Australiaâ€™s Great Barrier Reef is in danger of being ruined by climate change and coastal development.
Bleached corals bounce back to normal growth rates faster when they have clean water and lots of sea life at their side, a U.S.
A new study shows that bleached corals bounce back to normal growth rates more quickly when they have clean water and plentiful sea life at their side
Better coral reef assessment and management are needed if the reefs are to survive global warming, a conservation group said Wednesday in Washington. The International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources made the statement in releasing a report Resilience Assessment of Coral Reefs. We already know that climate change is destroying coral reefs through warming waters that cause coral bleaching and through acidifying oceans that hinders coral skeleton growth, Garriel...
Experts say that more than half of the world's coral reefs could disappear in the next 50 years, in large part because of higher ocean temperatures caused by climate change.
An Australian-led World Wild Life study predicts worldwide catastrophic losses of coral by the end of this century due to climate change. The WWF-commissioned study, led by University of Queensland Professor Ove Hoegh-Guldberg, determined coral reefs could disappear entirely from the Coral Triangle region of the Pacific Ocean, thereby threatening the food supply and livelihoods for about 100 million people. Researchers said averting such a catastrophe will depend on quick and effective global...
Scientists reported Thursday that a section of Australiaâ€™s Great Barrier Reef - in danger of being killed by global warming within mere decades - has regenerated itself in record time.
In the journal Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science, University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science Professor Dr. Peter Glynn, and 2008 Pew Fellow for Marine Conservation and Assistant Professor Dr. Andrew Baker, assess more than 25 years of data on reef ecosystems recovery from climate change-related episodes of coral bleaching.
The remainder of the worldâ€™s coral is in danger of being eliminated as a result of human activities, pollution and over-fishing, according to an international report.
