Rapid poleward range expansion of tropical reef corals in response to rising sea surface temperatures
[1] Rising temperatures caused by climatic warming may cause poleward range shifts and/or expansions in species distribution. Tropical reef corals (hereafter corals) are some of the world's mostExpand
