Coral larvae depend on their parents to create nooks and crannies for them so that they can stay, settle and re-establish after a reef has been damaged, according to new findings published this week. “Storms, floods, and coral bleaching damage
Our work with UTS monitoring Sydney Harbour’s temperate corals has found widespread recovery from the bleaching reported in April in response to cooler waters. Ongoing demography and physiological studies of the Sydney Harbour corals are providing much-needed information about how
Kyle Zawada’s Ph.D. work on 3D scanning corals has been highlighted in a press release by Creaform. Kyle has spent much of the last two months at the Natural History Museum in London scanning coral skeletons from the collection there.
An international team of researchers has identified a way to predict which reef fish can live across a greater range of depths, increasing their chances of surviving natural disasters such as cyclones and coral bleaching. Study lead author, Dr Tom
Robotic torpedoes help map our corals on Great Barrier Reef [link]
A new study suggests that reef fish species may be hitting a ‘glass ceiling’ as water temperatures raise while reef predators receive substantial energy subsides from sources outside the reefs. An international team of researchers led by scientists at Macquarie
The corals that build spectacular structures, like the Great Barrier Reef, can be killed in many different ways. Over the past few decades, the focus has been on extreme and rare events, such as tropical cyclones, thermal bleaching and outbreaks
