Heatwaves could reduce the survival of coral larvae and the connectivity of coral populations in the Mediterranean Sea

Global climate change and, in particular, the warming of the oceans has caused the frequency and severity of marine heatwaves to increase every year, with serious consequences for the stability and resilience of coral populations. Researchers have analyzed the impact of the sudden increase in temperatures on the early life stages of two key species in the Mediterranean: the red coral and the white gorgonian.Global climate change and, in particular, the warming of the oceans has caused the frequency and severity of marine heatwaves to increase every year, with serious consequences for the stability and resilience of coral populations.
