A team of highly trained scientific divers explored Pacific and western Atlantic reefs to test a widely held hypothesis that climate-stressed life from shallow reefs can take refuge at mesophotic depths (100-500 feet beneath the ocean's surface). The results are clear: deep and shallow reefs are different systems with their own species, and deep reefs are just as threatened by climate impacts, storms, and pollution. [...]

New research has confirmed that invasive rats decimate seabird populations, with previously unrecognized consequences for the extensive coral reefs that encircle and protect these islands. Invasive predators such as rats -- which feed on bird eggs, chicks, and even adults birds -- are estimated to have decimated seabird populations within 90 percent of the world's temperate and tropical island groups, but until now the extent of their impact on surrounding coral reefs wasn't known.

Tropical oceans teem with the dazzle and flash of colorful reef fishes and contain far more species than the cold ocean waters found at high latitudes. This well-known 'latitudinal diversity gradient' is one of the most famous patterns in biology, and scientists have puzzled over its causes for more than 200 years. [...]
