New Research Shows Increasing Ocean Temperatures Affecting Coral Reefs

By jkatzman FORT LAUDERDALE-DAVIE, Fla. – It seems that coral reefs are experiencing something their human counterparts have been for years – a shrinking “empty nest” syndrome. That’s right – researchers have found that increasing ocean temperatures due to climate change will soon see reefs retaining and nurturing more of their own coral larvae, leaving large reef systems less interconnected. The study brought together an international group of researchers from NSU’s Oceanographic Center; the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies and the School of Marine and Tropical Biology at James Cook University in Australia; and Sesoko Station, Tropical Biosphere Research Center at the University of the Ryukyus, Japan. “This research has potentially significant implications for understanding the future of coral reefs,” said Richard Dodge, Ph.D., dean of NSU’s Oceanographic Center. “It has benefited from the outstanding international collaborations the Oceanographic Center has with researchers at James Cook University (Australia) and the University of the Ryukyus in Japan.” These findings have both positive and negative implications. “We found that at higher temperatures more coral larvae will tend to stay on their birth reef,” says Joana Figueiredo, Ph.D., who is with NSU’s Oceanographic Center but was with the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral …read more Source: NSU News     ...
