Coral Reefs May Be Adapting To Global Warming:
As global warming heats up the Earth’s oceans, one ecosystem stands to be severely threatened: Coral reefs. However, new research has given scientists hope about the fate of these coral reefs.
An international team of researchers has studied a coral population in South-East Asian waters that had survived a bleaching event. What was significant about this reef was that it had also survived another bleaching event 12 years earlier in 1998. But some reefs will not be able to adapt to the changing climates as well as others.
