Regular coral larvae supply from neighboring reefs helps degraded reefs recover


(University of Queensland) For reefs facing huge challenges, more coral larvae doesn’t necessarily translate to increased rates of coral recovery on degraded reefs, a new Queensland study has showed. The study, published today, was led by former University of Queensland School of Biological Sciences researcher Dr. Christopher Doropoulos, now of CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere, and involved collaboration with CSIRO, the University of Queensland, and Griffith University.
