No-take fishing zones on their own act as valuable sources of fish for neighboring reefs. These areas support more fish, which then produce even greater numbers of baby fish. But, just how many ...

Ocean Acidification Puts Deep-Sea Coral Reefs at Risk of Collapse

Deep-sea coral reefs face challenges as changes to ocean chemistry triggered by climate change may cause their foundations to become brittle, a study ...

Can Pumping Up Cold Water from Deep Within the Ocean Halt Coral Bleaching?

Rising ocean temperatures cause marine heat waves, which place stress on living coral animals, as well as the photosynthetic algae on which they depend for energy. A new study is showing potential ...

DNA Unlocks a New Understanding of Coral

A new study challenges more than 200 years of coral classification. Researchers say the 'traditional' method does not accurately capture the differences between species or their ...

Shedding Light on Coral Reefs

New research generates the largest characterization of coral reef spectral data to date. These data are an initial step in building a quantitative understanding of reef water clarity. With these ...

New Corals Discovered in Deep-Sea Study of Great Barrier Reef Marine Park

For the first time, scientists have viewed the deepest regions of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, discovered five undescribed species consisting of black corals and sponges, and recorded ...

Great Barrier Reef 'Glue' at Risk from Ocean Acidification

Scientists have suspected that increasing ocean acidity would weaken and thin the structures underpinning tropical reefs. Now they have irrefutable evidence dating back 30,000 ...

Uncovering the Hidden Life of 'Dead' Coral Reefs

'Dead' coral rubble can support more animals than live coral, according to researchers trialing a high-tech sampling method. A researcher said that reef rubble habitat was often overlooked ...

Warmer, Acidifying Ocean Brings Extinction for Reef-Building Corals, Renewal for Relatives

A new study finds that reef-building corals emerged only when ocean conditions supported the construction of these creatures' stony skeletons, whereas diverse softer corals and sea anemones ...

Ocean Acidification Causing Coral 'Osteoporosis' on Iconic Reefs

Scientists have long suspected that ocean acidification is affecting corals' ability to build their skeletons, but it has been challenging to isolate its effect from that of simultaneous warming ...

Difficult, Complex Decisions Underpin the Future of the World's Coral Reefs

Effective solutions to the climate challenge threatening the world's coral reefs require complex decisions about risk and uncertainty, timing, quality versus quantity as well as which species to ...

New Tool for Identifying Endangered Corals Could Aid Conservation Efforts

A newly developed genotyping 'chip' -- the first of its kind for corals -- allows researchers to genetically identify corals and the symbiotic algae that live within the coral's cells, ...
