4,000-year-old coral beds among world's oldest living things, prof says
Date:3/25/2009

more than a few hundred years old, he says, "so to find out that they are thousands of years old is a very exciting time for us."

Roark said the coral beds could keep researchers busy for decades.

"There are whole sets of ecology and biology questions that these coral beds raise," he points out.

"It's a case where one question leads to another and another, and we're still searching for some answers. The extreme age of the coral beds and their very slow growth, combined with the high levels of biodiversity surrounding the coral beds, means that protecting these reefs from further damage has to be a top priority."
