        Ocean Species Respond to Climate Change: Stephen Palumbi Lecture | HHMI BioInteractive

        In this lecture, explore how climate change is affecting our oceans, and how ocean species are responding.

        Some ocean organisms, like coral, have shown the ability to better adapt to climate change. Adaptations seen in the coral reefs off of Ofu Island in American Samoa may hold some solutions to protecting the future of our oceans.
