      About the Book. In recent years, a catastrophic global bleaching event devastated many of the world’s precious coral reefs. Working on the front lines of ruin, today’s coral scientists are struggling to save these important coral reef ecosystems from the imminent threats of rapidly warming, acidifying, and polluted Whisperers. Bleaching killed 34 percent of the island’s reefs between and , a study finds. Coral Deaths Spurred by Pollutants From Land Nicoletta Lanese |

      was one of the two hottest years since records started in , and was the most damaging for coral reefs in the Caribbean. Abnormally high sea surface temperatures resulted in coral bleaching and mortality throughout the region, and there was record hurricane activity, including some particularly damaging storms.   One of the most dire consequences of global climate change for coral reefs is the increased frequency and severity of mass coral bleaching events. This volume provides information on the causes and consequences of coral bleaching for coral reef ecosystems, from the level of individual colonies to ecosystems and at different spatial scales, as well as a detailed analysis of how it can be.

    This was the largest coral bleaching event recorded. The hot weather led to an increase in the temperature of the sea surface a few degrees higher than the summer maximum that coral can support. About 5% of the Great Barrier Reef in Australia was damaged. 27% of the world coral reef has been lost and 32% is at risk in the next few decades. From the reviews: "The book Coral bleaching: patterns, processes, causes and consequences, edited by Madeleine van Oppen and Janice Lough of the Australian Institute of Marine Sciences, is! a timely contribution to the coral bleaching literature.! Overall, the book is a useful addition to the library of reef ecology researchers and students.

Coral bleaching occurs when coral polyps expel algae that live inside their tissues. Normally, coral polyps live in an endosymbiotic relationship with these algae, which are crucial for the health of the coral and the reef.

The algae provides up to 90 percent of the coral's energy. Bleached corals continue to live but begin to starve after bleaching.
