Last Thursday Scientists released a report that showed that a section of the reef that was being killed off by global warming has regenerated - Some of the factors assisting the recovery have been isolating this part of the reef from pollution - this was the influuence for our new network name from sundays workshop- hyperbolic pollution.
Have a read of this article about the regeneration as there are interesting new observations on how 'the reef managed "asexual re-growth" from surviving tissue fragments '
