How will coral reefs look like in the future? Adaptive mechanisms and sublethal effects in corals under global change

Project description

Can coral reefs survive in a changing environment?

Coral reefs are being threatened by ongoing global environmental pressures. The EU-funded CoralChange project will explore the effects of global changes on coral species across multiple generations to see how their population dynamics and viability are compromised in the long term. Using demographic predictive models, it will identify how adaptation to ocean warming and acidification may undermine young corals. The project’s results will help in developing effective management and conservation strategies, as well as identifying coral species more likely to survive in the future.
