An (ecological) origin of species for tropical reef fish

...2000 km gap is believed to be a strong barrier for corals and associated reef organisms." "My idea was to test whether or not wrasses in the genus Halichoeres were genetically different North and South of this barrier. Since all of these species have similar abilities to disperse, I expected to find geneti...

Tsunami-damaged coral reefs should be left to recover naturally, say scientists

...low them to repair themselves. Only in areas where corals were more or less wiped out and no healthy reefs remained nearby to provide a source of new coral larvae, would artificial methods such as coral transplantation be clearly beneficial. Dr Alasdair Edwards, a researcher and senior lecturer with the Un...

Sea coral's trick helps scientists tag proteins

...kyanov, no one had looked for GFP-like proteins in corals because they do not glow in the dark like fireflies and jellyfish. The corals' native green and red fluorescent proteins give off light only when stimulated by higher intensity light. Lukyanov's findings resulted in the discovery of many new GFP-like...

Anemone genes reveal versatile building blocks for body plans

...--a simple sea anemone. Sea anemones, along with corals and jellyfish, are members of the phylum Cnidaria, and they possess a radial body plan that is distinct from the familiar bilateral body plan exhibited by vertebrates and many other animals. Despite their superficial dissimilarities, Cnidarians and o...
