While life and death are believed by some to be ultimately spiritual in nature rather than physical, and we might imagine that when a coral reef dies, the soul of the reef wafts gently to heaven, it is still true that death is accompanied by physical changes of various sorts. In the case of coral reefs, the mineral component remains but the polyps who secreted that mineral component can die. Loss of polyps would constitute a physical change.
