Science knows a lot of different forms of symbiosis, but this the first time scientists have found: Corals call for help calves to protect them from those toxic algae.
Examples of symbiosis that is close co-existence and mutual adaptation of members of different species in nature abound. To mind immediately come microorganisms that live in the intestines of mammals, without which digestion would be virtually impossible, or, say, widespread in the tropics, ants and community trees. Typically, speaking of symbiotic mutualism mean, that is a win-win cooperative species, although there are Read more [...]
Growth in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere leads to an increase in the amount of gas dissolved in the ocean water. This leads to an increase in the number of bicarbonate ions, reducing the number of carbonate ions and increased acidity. Scientists have long known that increasing ocean acidity adversely affect corals and shells of marine animals.A team of scientists led by University of California, Dr. Stephen Comeau decided to explore ways to preserve coral and shells. Corals Porite brought from French Polynesia, the scientists placed in special laboratory pools. In the laboratory, scientists Read more [...]
