Coral Biology

ECO Internship 1 – Coral Biology

The fundamentals of coral biology. What is a coral? How does it feed and reproduces itself? These are important questions to understand how a coral reef functions. Indonesia is in the center of the Coral Triangle, known to be the world’s best marine biodiversity hotspot. It supports more than 500 reef building corals. Understanding the basics of coral biology is important to appreciate the complex marine ecosystem.
