New research on tropical coral reef ecosystems showed that releasing larvae more often is beneficial for a species' network. The study on reproductive strategies is critical to assess the conservation of coral reef ecosystems ...
Corals may be better equipped to tolerate climate change than previously believed, according to research led by Dr Emma Kennedy from Griffith University (Queensland, Australia).
Scientists from the University of Southampton have discovered the genetic basis which allows corals to produce their stunning range of colours.
New research from the University of Southampton has identified a coral-eating flatworm as a potential threat for coral reefs.
New research has found that the Great Barrier Reef is a remarkably effective wave absorber, despite large gaps between the reefs. This means that landward of the reefs, waves are mostly related to local winds rather than ...
Two marine biologists have found a red algae species that resembles a branching coral.
Researchers from The University of Western Australia have used non-destructive stereo video technology to obtain proof that marine reserves can have positive effects on reef shark populations.
Climate change could cause local extinctions of chocolate dipped damselfish that are highly specialised to the conditions on their home reef.
(Phys.org)—New research by the University of Southampton has found a mechanism as to how corals use their pink and purple hues as sunscreen to protect them against harmful sunlight.
Research from the University of Southampton and National Oceanography, Southampton has provided new insight into the basic immune response and repair mechanisms of corals to disease and changing environmental conditions.
