Silver lining to coral reef climate cloud

A team of Researchers, led by Merinda Nash from Australian National University (ANU), have found parts of our coral reefs are more resistant to ocean acidification than first thought. The study was published in the journal Nature Climate Change today (Monday 10th December) and details their analyses of the mineral structure of coralline algae. The […]
