CORALS VS ACIDIFYING OCEANS
In a world-first, scientists from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies (CoECRS) have shown that tropical corals have the ability to fight back against acidifying oceans caused by human emissions of carbon dioxide.
While the threat of coral bleaching from higher sea-surface temperatures and direct human impacts still present serious risks to the long-term prospects for coral reefs, the research findings suggest that many corals have the ability to largely offset the effects of increasingly acidic oceans.
Researchers used a boron isotope technique to calculate the effects of the acidification process on coral growth rate and found that almost all coral species are able to reduce the pH of the seawater they take in
