Incorporating adaptive responses into future projections of coral bleaching
This study used the latest bias-corrected global sea surface temperature output from the NOAA/GFDL Earth System Model 2 (ESM2M) for the preindustrial period through 2100 to project coral bleaching trajectories and found that corals may have already responded adaptively to some warming over the industrial period.

The sequence in which cellular stress response-linked genes are expressed during acute heat stress is investigated, to elucidate how severity of stress affects the categories of genes changing expression and the effects of acclimation on induction temperature yield new insights into the fundamental mechanisms of eurythermy.
Genomic models predict successful coral adaptation if future ocean warming rates are reduced
It is shown that cool-water corals can adapt to warmer oceans but only under mild scenarios resulting from international emissions controls, and incorporation of genomic data into models of species response to climate change offers a promising method for estimating future adaptive processes.
Transcriptomic responses to environmental temperature in eurythermal and stenothermal fishes
Comparative transcriptomics is rapidly accelerating the authors' understanding of how fish respond to thermal stress; this review summarizes and synthesizes gene expression patterns from stenothermal and eurythermal species responding to acute and long-term exposure to temperature.
Species-Specific Responses of Juvenile Rockfish to Elevated pCO2: From Behavior to Genomics
The capacity of long-lived, late to mature, commercially important fish to acclimatize and adapt to changing ocean chemistry over the next 50–100 years is likely dependent on species-specific physiological tolerances.

The results suggest that energetic costs of macromolecular turnover and membrane-localized transport rise with acclimation temperature, and a pattern of transcriptional alteration in steady-state acclimated fish may be a signature of eurythermy.
