  • Coral reefs in the Indian and Pacific oceans seem to be recovering more quickly than expected from a recent devastating "bleaching" caused by high ocean temperatures. New research suggests that the nascent recoveries may be partly due to the unexpected survival of juvenile coral that somehow avoided the brunt of the environmental assault. However, the coral would not be able to mature and recover from the repeated bleaching forecast to accompany projected global warming, researchers say.
