“Taste” and “smell” of coral reefs provide insights into dynamic marine ecosystems
Coral reefs are hotspots of biodiversity and are amazingly productive with a vast number of organisms interacting simultaneously. Hundreds of molecules that are made by important members of the coral reef community were recently discovered by a team…

Microbes decisive in battle between coral and turf algae
Corals worldwide are threatened due to climate change and local stressors. The front line of the battle, however, is microscopic in scale. In the competition between coral and turf algae, microbes can be decisive in the outcome.
