Global warming has caused sea water temperatures to rise, with a fatal impact on coral reefs, a fragile ecosystem. The most severe coral reef reef occurred in 2016, and this situation is considered less likely to "reverse", many coral reefs that survived still die slowly. But researchers also found that although coral reefs were observed in many parts of the world, coral reefs in some areas were in good shape and some were still growing.
Researchers at the Queensland Museum of Australia reported that they found 195 species of coral species in a deep reef area of the Great Barrier Reef using remote vehicles and professional diving, compared to 32 previously recorded species. Grow up. The deep reef area represents about half of the coral species in the area, and the deeper coral area provides additional protection against the fading and severe storm events. At the same time, most coral dynasties are also found in deep reefs, so this habitat can play an important role in protecting the diversity of coral reefs and may contribute to the regeneration of damaged shallow reefs.
