Corals and Coral Reefs

Parent Category: Cnidarians
Coral reefs are the most diverse and beautiful of all marine habitats, and home to a myriad of animals that live in this complex biome. Coral reefs are under threat from climate change, ocean acidification, overuse of reef resources, and harmful land-use practices.

Coral are very simple organisms, so they have no specialized  structures for removing waste. Instead, inside the coral tissue are  organisms called zooxanthellae that use the coral's waste for  photosynthesis.
Yes. Organisms die and their skeletons collect to make coral.
Boaters can protect coral by dropping their anchors on sandy  patches of sea bed.
If the seabed is destroyed, the coral cannot get nutrients to live.
The Great Barrier Reef is the largest coral reef ecosystem on earth  and one of the best managed marine areas in the world. At 348 000  square kilometres, the Reef is one of the richest and most diverse  natural ecosystems on Earth.    The unique qualities of this property were recognised in...

Herd the fish into a wall.

The Great Barrier Reef is in the South Pacific; specifically, it  is in the Coral Sea, which lies off the northeast coast of  Australia. It runs roughly parallel to the coast of Queensland.

I am not sure if this is what you are asking but, The Great Barrier  Reef is off the east coast of the Queensland mainland in Australia.  It is part of the World Heritage List which, in a nutshell, means  that it is a protected area. You can learn more about it at either  of these sites. First,...
Pollution in the water.Also people pouring bleach into the water to catch fish.

Coral wargent is used in taibach, port talbot, south wales UK :) xx
he gets killed by being eaten by a huge unnamed fish.
Well, there are a lot of limiting factors, but one I do know is: if there is an over abundance of fish and sea animals, the water will become less clear. Then the bacteria will start to die off, thus, killing the coral reefs, which will mean the fish and other sea life will have to find a different...
They are formed in the ocean.By some rocks and plants.Put on for hundreds of years.
  Fish need it for food, the soil needs it for clean-up, and plants need it for filtering soil.
Yes a clown fish live in coral reefs.
lives for 8 years in aquariums but the actual life span isnt known
There is no huge coral formation on the north coast of Australia.  The Great Barrier Reef is a 2300 km long coral reef off the  northeastern coast of Australia.
  To find out how it grows reproduces the effects it has on it surroundings the same reasons scientists look at any thing. That their job studying things.
because the nutrents in the coral
The Great Barrier Reef is along the coast/shore of Queensland,  Australia.

No, they are just normal swimming fishes who live in the open water.

The Great Barrier Reef is being adversely affected through human  activities. The dumping of thousands of tonnes of toxic solid  wastes in oceans and the release of lethal chemicals in the seas,  leads to changes in the natural conditions prevalent. Moreover,  thermal power plants release large...
There are a total of 82 species of coral as of February 12th, 2010
sea pens, blue corals, soft corals and sea fans.
coral bleaching effects the reef . this occurs when the algae leaves the reef and it loses color and dies off . Another reason is tourist attractions. tourists come with their drinks and boats and pollutes the water . hope it helps..
It is an icon because it is very large and beautiful. Also, a lot of ppl visit it every day.
Most of the time Cape Coral stays in the 80s and 90s.
The crackling sounds are usually made by snapping shrimps.
The people of the area speak mainly English. The sea life in the reef probably speaks a dialect of fish.
You have to attach the little white bulb things onto the rocks, then drag the algae (click and drag) to the open bulbs. Certain bulbs only want certain kinds of algae, so be careful!
mangroves, algae, seaweed, seagrass, and plankton
Algae are in a symbiotic relationship with coral. Parrotfish, butterfly fish, angelfish, sea slugs, snails, worms and the crown-of-thorns starfish all eat coral.

Coral Castle was constructed mostly limestone from coral and considered to be built single handedly by Leedskalnin using magnetism. Leedskalnin spent over 28 years building the Coral Castle.
The Great Barrier Reef was World Heritage Listed in 1981.
  yes it is.
Coral reef ecosystems support a variety of human needs. They are important for subsistence, fisheries, tourism, shoreline protection, and yield compounds that are important in the development of new medicines.
  Two kinds of plants are algae and zooaxenthella and those are only 2! :)   Two kinds of plants are algae and zooaxenthella and those are only 2! :)
Probably, seeing as it is the 'Great Barrier Reef', there might be some in the deep, dark depths of it!
they eat them because one throne starfish can eat more than 40 square kilo metres in a year or coral
they are islands of coral
Yes you can go to the reef.
I believe that the Coral specimen is hard and rocky, though there could also be specimens that are soft, considering that Coral comes in all shapes, sizes, and colors. It is more often hard and bumpy than soft like a sponge.
Because the Great Barrier Reef extends for 2000 km up the  Queensland coast, there are several cities close to the reef. A  large city which is closest to where the reef comes in nearest the  coast is Cairns.    Townsville is a large city along the coast, but the reef is not as  accessible...
maybe because they could be shrimps.
  There are millions of plants and animals that live in the Great Barrier Reef. here is a list of a few the Green Sea Turtle, many types of Fish, Coral, Anemone, Sharks and Sting rays. There is no place on earth like the Geat Barrier Reef.
According to the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, there  are about 1625 species of fish that live in and around the Great  Barrier Reef, not including the shark species. Of these, 1400 are  coral reef species.    In addition, there are over 3000 species of molluscs, 630 species  of...
The majority of the Great Barrier Reef is underwater, but there are many islands and coral atolls which help make up the Reef, and these parts you can walk on.
The greatest cause of coral death is the sustained increase in temperature that reefs are currently undergoing. (check - GREAT BARRIER REEFS AUSTRALIA) This is similar to the almost total elimination of the great kelp forests which are now almost totally gone after just 10 years of water temperature...
  == Answer ==   "it is a great furnace of wrath" is a metaphor. The pronoun it is used in place of Hell, so Hell is being compared to a great furnace of wrath.

no corals do not catch plankton even though they are an animal Actually, both hard and soft corals do catch plankton. A coral polyp (the individual coral animal) has a mouth surrounded by stinging tentacles. Hard corals stretch out their tentacles at night, when the plankton are drifting in the...
The Great Barrier Reef, one of the natural wonders of the world, begins just off the coast of Bundaberg, 368 kilometres north of the state capital, Brisbane, and extends over 2000 km north to a point just south of Papua New Guinea.
The Great Barrier Reef is along the NE coast of Australia. It is in the Coral Sea on the upper east coast of Queensland.
yes it is important to algae in reef building
Yes, Turtles eat coral and have teeth strong enough to chew it
it is some fish
