the species of coral that have a single algae species are more resistance to climate change, ocean acidification, pollution, and over fishing than those species of coral that house multiple species of Symbiodinium.

"Hollie Putnam, Ph.D. candidate at UHM and lead author of the study determined that the species of coral that have a single algae species are more resistance to climate change, ocean acidification, pollution, and over fishing than those species of coral that house multiple species of Symbiodinium.

The species of coral examined span the range from environmentally endangered to thriving.

Future examinations of coral in Hawaii, Moorea, Taiwan, and American Samoa are planned to develop the most proactive and practical methods to protect coral from the loss of their algae symbiots, bleaching, and potential death."
