Remaking the Coral Tree of Life

WSFB Website

Summary

A coral reef in all its glory is quite a sight, teeming with life and home to many diverse species. Recent advances in technology have challenged our understanding of coral family trees. So, what do we know now? What are the implications for the Great Barrier Reef? And will our new knowledge help save these precious ecosystems from the effects of climate change?
