New research by UGA ecologists sheds light on exactly what happens to coral during periods of excessively high water temperatures. Their study, published in the journal Limnology and Oceanography, documents a coral bleaching event in the Caribbean in minute detail and sheds light on how it changed a coral’s community of algae—a change that could have long-term consequences for coral health, as bleaching is predicted to occur more frequently in the future.
SciDev.Net, a website that provides science and technology information for the global development community, reports on a study about malaria and climate change led by Odum School Associate Professor John Drake.
