Scientists Pinpoint How Corals Build Their Bony Structures

Corals rely on their own proteins to help create their rock-hard skeletons, according to a finding that contradicts a theory that the structures are created solely by a more passive chemical process, a new study reveals. The results , published in the 2 June issue of Science, suggest that the skeletal growth of corals may not be as negatively impacted by increasingly acidic seas as previously expected.
