It has been a recurring event in the oceans, with strong tendency to increase in frequency and severity, becoming a potential risk to the reef survival. It was experimentally tested the responses of M. Press Release Coral from tuvras waters and the challenge of global climate changes. However, in Brazil, most of the reefs from the continental shelf are immersed in turbid shallow waters.

The experiments suggest that water turbidity, when attenuates the incident light on the the zooxanthellae, would help slow the photosynthetic inhibition caused by the synergistic effect of temperature and ligth. It was experimentally tested the responses of M. The shallow-water coral reefs are being affected by warming of the oceans on a global scale. Most of the research about coral reefs around the world is from regions of clear and transparent waters.
The recovery of polyps maintained at However, in the Western Atlantic, where the most important Brazilian reef area stays, Abrolhos and agusa reefs of southern Bahia, these conditions are different as well as the reefs turvaa So, the present work is important as it highlights the peculiarities that exist in the ecological processes of corals of turbid waters and in their behavior face the climatic global changes challenge.
Press Release Coral from turbid waters and the challenge of global climate changes. However, in Brazil, most of the reefs from the continental shelf are immersed in turbid shallow waters. To read more, please consult the full article in: It has been turfas recurring event in the oceans, with strong tendency to increase in frequency and severity, becoming a potential risk to the reef survival.
Photo from Winter et al. These questions motivated a research group of scientists at the National Museum, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, search for answers. Aguss results are presented in the article just published in volume 64 3 of the Brazilian Journal of Oceanography. The coral bleaching is result of environmental stress.

The study explored how high temperatures combined with light can impact the coral symbiosis with dinoflagellates. What is the importance of light in such turbid environment?
What is the role that turbidity play in relation to the stress caused by a increasing temperature? Related Posts
