Climate change could not be “fatal” for all corals

Some corals that live in the Caribbean could adapt to new climatic conditions, says a scientific study of the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI), based in Panama, released Friday.

“Having many genetic variants is like buying many lottery tickets,” said Carlos Prada, lead author of the study.

According to experts, for a period of between 3.5 and 2.5 million years, the number of all species of coral in the Caribbean increased.
