Scientists replicate landmark study to determine changes in coral sea temperature tolerance over time. In the three species of Hawaiian corals retested, bleaching occurred later, with higher survivorship and growth rates than the same species of corals in 1970. However, scientists warn that temperatures are rising faster than corals can change. [...]

New research shows that not all corals respond the same to changes in climate. The study looked at the sensitivity of two types of corals found in Florida and the Caribbean and found that one of them - -mountainous star coral -- possesses an adaptation that allows it to survive under high temperatures and acidity conditions.

Research describes upheaval among fish and invertebrate communities after a marine heatwave hit Australia's Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea in early 2016. The study analyzed data collected across these areas by the Reef Life Survey (RLS) citizen science program. It identified important changes in reef-animal communities that may affect the resilience of coral reefs, potentially reducing the capacity of corals to rebuild after mass bleaching. [...]
