Australia | Study at Great Barrier Reef finds reefs with living corals more resilient than expected

As humans continue to emit record levels of carbon dioxide, we are putting marine habitats at risk. One consequence of these emissions, ocean acidification, is a serious threat to many undersea environments—especially coral reefs.


Now, a multinational study on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia offers a small ray of hope. Reefs with higher numbers of living corals will be more resilient than expected to damage from acidifying seawater, scientists reported recently in Nature Evolution and Ecology.
