New estimate on coral age hints at recovery hope

Kaust, Saudi Arabia (SPX) Aug 10, 2018 The relationship between corals and the micro-algae that enable them to build reefs is considerably older and more diverse than previously assumed, according to an international team of scientists. The team's research suggests that coral-algal partnerships have endured numerous climate change events in their long history, and offers a glimmer of hope that at least some are likely to surviv
