Tiny polyps gorge themselves to survive coral bleaching

...ases globally. But Grottoli warns that Montipora's resilience doesn't diminish the threat that bleaching events hold for the world's coral reefs. While it might survive while other species may not, on a global scale it is unlikely to re-colonize areas where less-resilient species died. "Recent projections sug...

Ancient DNA provides clues to the evolution of social behavior

...ve only a couple of tools, you don't have a lot of resilience for dealing with an unexpected event.'' According to Chan, the evolution of the colonial tuco-tuco's social behavior may be linked to the population bottleneck.

Batfish to the rescue!

...hich are in decline in many areas. "Indeed, the resilience of inshore GBR reefs may be closely tied to the fate of mangroves and their suitability for batfish recruitment." Batfishes may be one of the last intact herbivore populations capable of reversing serious weed overgrowth of inshore coral reefs, he...
