The Coral Microbiome

The Coral Microbiome

A crystal clear ocean may be attractive to humans going for a swim, but that high level of clarity indicates a minimal amount of nutrients for the organisms living underwater.  A vibrant coral ecosystem thriving in low nutrient conditions is known as the "paradox of the coral reef".  Learn more ....

A crystal clear ocean may be attractive to humans going for a swim, but that high level of clarity indicates a minimal amount of nutrients for the organisms living underwater. Oddly enough, it is in those kinds of low nutrient environments where many healthy corals live, such as the renowned Great Barrier Reef in Australia’s pristine Coral Sea. A vibrant coral ecosystem thriving in low nutrient conditions is known as the ‘paradox of the coral reef.’ Learn more >>> - See more at: http://colsa.unh.edu/coral-microbiome#sthash.OtyvE2tn.dpuf
