Global Warming Affects Coral Population Too
With the gradual advancement in the field of science and technology, new plants and factories are being developed that contribute a lot in the cause of global warming. Global warming is also held responsible for the change in climatic conditions.
Global warming is basically caused by an increase in level of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and other harmful gases in the atmosphere. The new report states that global changes in climatic conditions are expected to affect the coral population.
Earlier, it was believed that coral reefs will never face any risk of extinction till they become rare. But, the gradual increase in climatic conditions had opposed the earlier statement.
This research has been published by a team of scientists from University of Hawaii Manoa (UHM), Joint Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Research (JIMAR) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
Researchers had used the past geological records to find out the characteristics of the dominant corals under various conditions. Scientists said that the natural process hinders the growth of coral reefs by making them more vulnerable to climate changes.
The UHM said: "This advantageous rapid growth may have been attained in part by neglecting investment in few defenses against predation, hurricanes, or warm seawater".
