Global warming has led to rising sea water temperatures, which have a fatal impact on coral reefs, a fragile ecosystem. The most serious bleaching of the coral reef occurred in 2016, and it is believed that this situation is less likely to "reverse," and many surviving coral reefs are still slowly dying. Researchers have found, however, that coral reefs have been observed in many parts of the world, and in some areas coral reefs have been in good condition and some have risen.
Researchers at the Queensland Museum in Australia reported in a Journal of the Royal Society of British B that they discovered 195 species of coral species in the deep reef area of the Great Barrier Reef through remotely controlled vehicles and professional diving compared to 32 species registered previously. Significantly increased. The deep reef zone is about half of the coral species in the area, and the deep coral reef area provides additional protection against fading and heavy storms. At the same time, most coral reefs also occur in deep reefs, so this habitat can play an important role in conserving the diversity of coral reefs and can contribute to the regeneration of damaged shallow reefs.
