Spatial Variation in Background Mortality among Dominant Coral Taxa on Australia's Great Barrier Reef

by Chiara Pisapia, Morgan S. PratchettEven in the absence of major disturbances (e.g., cyclones, bleaching), corals are consistently subject to high levels of background mortality, which undermines individual fitness and resilience of coral colonies. ... [Published Plosone.org - Jun 25 2014]

Amakusaplana Acroporae: This Coral-Eating Worm May Mean Big Trouble For Reefs

It is barely possible to see the parasitic worm Amakusaplana acroporae when it sits on its favorite hosts, the staghorn coral Acropora, thanks to its excellent camouflage. However, new research from the University of Southampton has found that the small ... [Published Scientific Blogging - Apr 11 2014]

Quotes

...constant versus oscillating treatments) on corals have been tested in only one study : that of Dufault et al . (2012), who found that "corals respond in different ways to each condition with the highest rates of calcification occurring under oscillating pCO 2 conditions."
...And one or the other of these two responses must work pretty well, for after their analysis of the subject, they report that "coral reefs have shown a remarkable resilience to past climate change."
...have going for them is that they make rock and they're capable of growing islands, entire structures that you can see from space," Palumbi said. "If we can find a way to help them do that, then we've got a leg up and can help that future be better."
...genetic information of the whole coral community, understanding the molecular mechanism behind the host coral is impossible," says Shinzato. "The complementarity in amino acid synthesis between the host coral and its symbiont had long been predicted, but our study provides an insight into coral-symbiont interactions at a genetic level for the first time" Shinzato added, underlining the significance of this study
