A recent study conducted on coral reefs along the coast of Panama is helping to shed light on how marine species are impacted by an increasingly warming planet. The results of this study have implications for the diverse marine animals that live in coral reefs and may help scientists better understand the complex dynamic between climate change and ecosystems.
