When you think about coral, invariably your first thoughts are of pristine waters and a colourful reef, buzzing with marine activity. But did you know there is coral right here in Sydney Harbour? And in fact, these corals ...
Geoengineering of the climate may be the only way to save coral reefs from mass bleaching, according to new research.
The success of corals that adapt to survive in the world's hottest sea could contribute to their demise through global warming, according to new research.
Using cutting-edge genomic analyses researchers are investigating how the Kimberley marine environment's unique conditions affect organism movement in the region.
Grazing fish can help save coral reefs, but not all grazers are created equal, according to a Florida International University study published in Marine Ecology Progress Series.
Coral reefs are generally associated with warm, shallow and crystal-clear waters in the tropics. Other species of coral, however, flourish in the deep cold ocean where they also form large reefs. Now researchers from the ...
UM Rosenstiel School researchers found coral species can buffer the effects of climate change by increasing feeding during stressful environmental conditions
As greater atmospheric carbon dioxide boosts sea temperatures, tropical corals face a bleak future. New climate model projections show that conditions are likely to increase the frequency and severity of coral disease outbreaks, ...
Black band coral disease is affecting nearly half of the reef sites researchers have surveyed in waters off Kauai, the state Department of Land and Natural Resources said.
The hybridisation of algae that live in reef corals could increase their rate of development and provide a means for corals to adapt to global warming, Victoria University of Wellington research has shown.
