  • A bleak future for Mediterranean coral as oceans become more acidic

    Mediterranean red coral (Corallium rubrum), already endangered due to over-harvesting, is likely to suffer still further under increasing ocean acidification as a result of rising CO2 emissions. Research has shown that under more acidic conditions the structural development of red coral skeletons is abnormal and growth rate is reduced. The world’s oceans are absorbing greater quantities of ...
