Open Archive Day
After several features on threats to coral reefs, including ocean acidification, warming, El Niño, and overfishing, I wrote one last June on what if anything can be done to save them.
Still, the threats keep coming and the solutions don't seem to be moving quite as fast as the problems.
This feature (like the earlier features it references) is now on open access:
Can science rescue coral reefs?
