Coral reefs play a vital role in maintaining the ecological balance of the marine ecosystem. Various marine organisms depend on coral reefs for their existence and their natural processes. Coral reefs provide the necessary habitat for reproduction and growth for various exotic species of the marine ecosystem. In this article, we discuss the most important parameters which influence the lifecycle of coral and coral reefs such as ocean acidification, deoxygenation and other physical parameters… 


Ocean Acidification and Coral Reefs: An Emerging Big Picture
This article summarises the sometimes controversial contributions made by the different sciences to predict the path of ocean acidification impacts on the diversity of coral reefs during the present
Ocean acidification and warming will lower coral reef resilience
Ocean warming and acidification from increasing levels of atmospheric CO2 represent major global threats to coral reefs, and are in many regions exacerbated by local‐scale disturbances such as
Ocean acidification causes bleaching and productivity loss in coral reef builders
Comparing bleaching, productivity, and calcification responses of crustose coralline algae and branching and branching coral species in response to acidification and warming suggests sensitive reef-building species such as CCA may be pushed beyond their thresholds for growth and survival within the next few decades.
Impacts of ocean acidification on marine fauna and ecosystem processes

Ocean acidification reduces coral recruitment by disrupting intimate larval-algal settlement interactions.
It is demonstrated that CO2 concentrations predicted to occur by the end of this century significantly reduce coral settlement and CCA cover and the only preferred settlement substrate (Titanoderma) in the experimental controls was avoided by coral larvae as pCO2 increased, and other substrata selected.
Coral bleaching and habitat degradation increase susceptibility to predation for coral-dwelling fishes
It is argued that increased susceptibility to predation may contribute to declines in abundance of coral-dwelling fishes after host coral bleaching, and even if predation does not cause increased in situ mortality, it is likely that increased exposure to predators will provide significant motivation to vacate bleached coral hosts.
Mitigating the atmospheric CO2 increase and ocean acidification by adding limestone powder to upwelling regions
[1] The feasibility of enhancing the absorption of CO2 from the atmosphere by adding calcium carbonate (CaCO3) powder to the ocean and of partially reversing the acidification of the ocean and the
An introduction to marine ecology
This work concludes that the Marine Ecosystem as a Functional Whole as well as the Nature and Global Distribution of Marine Organisms, Habitats and Productivity, and Human Interference and Conservation are under threat.
Effect of aragonite saturation state on settlement and post-settlement growth of Porites astreoides larvae
Saturation state had no significant effect on percent settlement; however, skeletal extension rate was positively correlated with saturation state, with ~50% and 78% reductions in growth at the mid and high pCO2 treatments compared to controls, respectively.
Reefs at Risk: A Map-Based Indicator of Threats to the World's Coral Reefs
This report concerns the first ever detailed map-based assessment of potential threats to coral reef ecosystems around the world. "Reefs at Risk" draws on 14 data sets (including maps of landcover
