Zooxanthellae may be capable of adapting to changing water temperatures

Posted on Monday, January 23rd, 2012 at 5:09 pm by

The Australian Institute of Marine Science recently conducted experiments on water temperatures on zooxanthellae. Historically it was believed that corals with a variety of zooxanthellae types could only with stand temperature changes. The results of these experiments leave researchers to believe that corals with a single type of zooxanthellae can handle thermal changes occurring in the ocean.

Good news. Further reading can be found here.
