Rare glimpse into how coral procreates could aid future conservation

16 marzo 2015

A rare and threatened Caribbean coral species has for the first time been successfully bred and raised in the lab, according to new research. The study provides the first photos of juveniles of this species, and could provide information to help bolster local coral reef conservation. The team plans to ‘out-plant’ these lab-grown juveniles in the wild which could help populations become more resilient to climate change.
