In the first global assessment of its kind, a science team led by researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego has produced a landmark report on the impact of fishing on a group of fish known to protect the health of coral reefs.

A Changing Climate May Not Spell Doom For Coral Reefs After All
2013-10-30 09:18:53

A new study from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and its academic partners reveals that coral reefs may be able to adapt to moderate climate warming, improving their chance of surviving through the end of this century.

Sharks Linked To Coral Health

Researchers wrote in the journal Environmental Research Letters that all existing coral reefs will die from inhospitable ocean chemistry conditions by the end of the century if civilization continues on its current path.

Microborers Represent New Threat To Earth’s Coral Reefs
2013-03-18 11:42:49

New research shows that when seawater is both acidic and warm, coral reefs may be more susceptible to microborers, such as algae, blue-green algae and fungi that inhabit reefs and bore tiny holes in it that undermine the strength of the coral skeleton

Increase In Coral Reef Bleaching Attributed To Climate Change
2013-02-25 19:26:09

Rising temperatures associated with climate change have already been shown to have an effect on a wide range of ecosystems and the creatures that reside within. Recent studies have now added coral reefs to the list of ecosystems that may be damaged as a result of climate change.

Coral reefs are submerged structures consisting of calcium carbonate secreted by corals. Coral reefs are colonies of small animals found in marine waters that enclose few nutrients. The majority of coral reefs are constructed from stony corals, which then consist of polyps that come together in groups. The polyps are like small sea anemones, to which they are very closely related. Unlike the sea anemones, coral polyps secrete hard carbonate exoskeletons which provide support and protections...
