How corals can actually benefit from climate change effects

from Eureka!

Researchers from North­eastern University's Marine Sci­ence Center and the Uni­ver­sity of North Car­olina at Chapel Hill have found that moderate ocean acid­i­fi­ca­tion and warming can actu­ally enhance the growth rate of one reef-​​building coral species. Only under extreme acid­i­fi­ca­tion and thermal con­di­tions did cal­ci­fi­ca­tion decline. Their work, which was pub­lished in the journal Pro­ceed­ings of the Royal Society B: Bio­log­ical Sci­ences, is the first to show that some corals may ben­efit from mod­erate ocean acidification. more
