Corals may be better equipped to
tolerate climate change than previously
believed, according to research led by
Griffith University's Dr Emma
Working with scientists from the Uni-
versity of Exeter in the UK, Dr Kennedy
says the findings---published in the jour-
nal Coral Reefs---relate to an extensive
study of Caribbean corals, but could
influence future analysis of Australia's
Great Barrier Reef.
Using a high-resolution molecular
screening technique called Real Time-
PCR, the researchers confirmed that the
partnership between Symbiodinium D---
a symbiotic algae associated with resist-
ance to coral bleaching---and Caribbean
corals is more common than had been
"Corals rely on a relationship with
algae in order to get energy via photo-
synthesis," says Dr Kennedy, a postdoc-
toral research fellow in the School of
Environment's Australian Rivers Insti-
"However, under stressful conditions
such as increased temperatures, this
relationship can be disrupted, resulting
in a loss of the algae in an event known
as bleaching. In an extreme event, this
can lead to coral death.
"Our study focused on populations
of the Mountain Star coral, Orbicella
annularis, a widespread and prominent
reef species in the Caribbean."
Symbiodinium D was found to be
present in low abundances at almost
every location the researchers tested,
from Tobago to the Bahamas.
A 2007 research paper (Mieog et al.
2007, Coral Reefs) reported the presence
of Symbiodinium D in 71 per cent of
coral colonies tested on the Great Barrier
Having completed her PhD at the
University of Exeter, Dr Kennedy's latest
research involves assessing the responses
of coralline algae to ocean acidification
and warming. It aims to determine
whether coralline algae can be used to
track the impacts of climate change in
the Great Barrier Reef.
Caribbean coral findings may
influence Barrier Reef studies
