Large-scale Ocean Sanctuaries Could Protect Coral Reefs from Climate Change
One of the many adverse effects of climate change is the warming of the oceans, leading to more frequent coral bleaching events around the world. Andrea Grottoli, professor of Earth Sciences at the Ohio State University co-authored a study published in the journal Global Change Biology, titled Coral-bleaching responses to climate change across biological scales. The study promotes mesoscale sanctuaries, areas stretching across the ocean and beyond national boundaries, to help protect the reef environments.
