Heat stress 'may help coral reefs survive future climate change': Corals that have survived heat stress in the p...

Corals that have survived heat stress in the past are more likely to survive it in the future, a new study has claimed. The study, conducted by a team of international scientists working in the central Pacific, paves the way towards an important road map on the impacts of ocean warming, and will help scientists identify the habitats and locations where coral reefs are more likely to adapt to climate change. “We’re starting to identify the types of reef environments where corals are more likely to persist in the future,” Simon Donner, co-auhtor of the study from UBC’s Department of Geography, said. “The new data is critical for predicting the future for coral reefs, and for planning how society will cope in that future,” he said. When water temperatures get too hot, the tiny algae that provides coral with its colour and major food source is expelled. This phenomenon, called...
