DNA markers in coral might enable scientist to identify individual corals and study their genetic diversity. This information could provide clues to help with the conservation of coral reefs. Examining coral reef diversity and conservation is the subject of the One Species at a Time Coral podcast. Dr. Randi Rotjan of the New England Aquarium explains how coral reefs - bustling cities of marine life - are being affected by rising ocean temperatures.
The One Species at a Time podcast series is supported by the Harvard Museum of Comparative Zoology.
