    The Discovery Channel has an article about how coral may be more resilient than previously thought.

    Madeleine van Oppen of the Australian Institute of Marine Science said her study of the Great Barrier Reef off northeastern Australia found evidence of crossbreeding in the major Acropora genus of coral species.

    With crossbreading the coral can hopefully adapt to environmental changes.

    "The high level of genetic diversity provides an evolutionary advantage to this group of corals because the more genetic diversity there is within a population or species the more likely it is to be able to respond to environmental changes," she said.
