Coral chemicals protect against warming oceans

Australian marine scientists have found the first evidence that coral itself may play an important role in regulating local climate.They have discovered that the coral animal–not just its algal symbiont–makes an important sulphur-based molecule with properties to assist it in many ways, ranging from cellular protection in times of heat stress to local climate cooling by encouraging clouds to form.
