Context: About 14% of the world’s coral has been lost in less than a decade, a study of the health of coral reefs has found under report by Global Coral Reef Monitoring Network (GCRMN).
Note: The report by Global Coral Reef Monitoring Network (GCRMN) was drawn from a global dataset gathered by over 300 members of the network covering four decades from 1978 to 2019.
The study establishes a correlation between coral loss and climate change as sharp declines in coral cover corresponded with rapid increases in sea surface temperatures.
This transition from live hard coral to algae-dominated reef communities impacts marine habitats, rendering them less biodiverse and also affects the ecosystem services provided by them.
Positive aspects of Study
Despite a decline in hard coral cover during the last decade, on average, these reefs have more coral today than in 1983, when the first data from this region were collected, the scientists noted.
