Dying coral reefs color bright neon colors to survive

For years, Coral reefs all over the world have been devastated by Mass bleaching events as the oceans continue to warm due to climate change. Corals have little chance of recovering from these events – but a new study suggests they have an unusual method of survival: taking on a vibrant neon color. When bleaching events occur, extended spikes of …

This scary neon light coming from bleached coral could actually be good news

Due to climate change, ocean heat waves cause large bleaching events on corals and threaten reefs around the world almost every year. The high water temperatures pollute reef corals and cause them to expel the photosynthetic algae that are in their tissues. Due to the loss of these brownish-colored plant cells, the white limestone skeleton of the coral shines through …

Coral reefs are so badly damaged by climate change that decades of research to protect them may not even be applicable, scientists say. In a coral study over 20 years, British scientists found that a warming climate negated decades of knowledge about corals in protected areas, the so-called marine reserves. These sensitive and vital ecosystems have been used as a …
