Summer series: A calling for research. Initially, the dynamic, Danish-born Anders Meibom, a professor at EPFL’s Laboratory for Biological Geochemistry since 2012, was not the slightest bit interested in corals. Now he studies them, a loaf of homemade bread always close at hand.

Coral reefs are facing intensifying stressors, largely due to global increases in seawater temperature and decreases in pH. However, there is extensive environmental variability within ...
Reefs from Gulf of Aqaba in the Red Sea survived rise of seven degrees, say marine scientists
In a dying reef world, the writer explores the underwater bliss of a little Caribbean island that is showing the world just how to save coral.
Several widespread corals in the Red Sea are flubbing cues to spawn en masse.
Overheated oceans are killing corals; some may only survive with assisted evolution and migration, or as seedstock in coral nurseries.
Due to soaring temperatures, tropical coral reefs are facing a bleak future. But recent research shows that some of these corals are migrating to cooler subtropical seas, offering a measure ...
The proposal aims to control water pollution and coastal development that can damage the diverse ecosystem
Bleaching has hit the last relatively untouched section of the Great Barrier Reef. The key to saving it is to slow global warming.
The record-breaking marine heatwave in 2016 across the Great Barrier Reef has left much of the coral ecosystem at an “unprecedented” risk of collapse, research shows.
The ocean is undergoing unprecedented changes. What does it mean for marine life, the planet, and us?
Switzerland is working to bring countries around the Red Sea together to study heat-resistant corals found in its waters.
Our changing climate is a threat to corals, causing disfiguring bleaching and mortality to reefs that once teemed with life. Shlesinger and Loya alert us to an equally dangerous yet nearly ...
