Posted February 17, 2019 07:58:40 The Great Barrier, Australia’s iconic coral reef, has been left in a state of total disarray.
It’s a perfect storm of climate change, food shortages, and food insecurity.
But even more concerning is the fact that there’s a new species of algae called “graviolae.”
It has been dubbed “gastronomy’s last bastion of life.”
And the researchers are hoping to help solve this problem.
The researchers, from the University of New South Wales, have been researching the effects of this algae on the reef.
They have found that in a certain region of the reef, the algae’s growth rate is significantly higher than elsewhere.
And they believe this is because the algae have adapted to an area where they are unable to eat food.
It is the ultimate example of an adaptation, according to Dr. John Kwan, a researcher in the School of Marine and Atmospheric Science at UNSW.
“This is one of the most extreme examples of an adaptive system,” he said.
“It’s not the case that all species of life are equally suited to an environment that they’re in.
There’s a lot of variation in how organisms adapt to different environments.”
Kwan and his team are now looking into how this algae can be used to treat the reef’s nutritional deficiencies.
It could be used in the treatment of the nutrient deficiency, or in the prevention of disease.
In the past, researchers have used bacteria to treat nutrient deficiencies.
But because of the increased number of species and the more complex structure of the algae, it is more difficult to produce viable bacteria.
So the researchers have developed a new way to produce the necessary bacteria that can be grown in the lab.
It involves growing bacteria in water, in a nutrient solution, and then allowing them to grow on a substrate.
Kampun, who is a co-author of the paper published in the journal Aquaculture, says the algae could be a way to use bacteria to help fight disease in the reef system.
“These organisms are really interesting because they have a very, very complex structure,” he explained.
It could be that if they are exposed to some nutrients, they can adapt to the nutrient, and that could help us to develop a way of controlling the algae and controlling the growth of the bacteria.
This is just the latest in a string of projects in Australia to develop algae that can feed the reef and help it thrive.
Scientists are currently working on the creation of algae to fight coral bleaching.
They are also looking into ways to treat food insecurity and improve the nutrition in the environment.
With so much at stake, this could be an extremely significant undertaking.
But Kwan believes the project could be far more important in the long run.
“We are at a point where we’re really just starting to understand how this could work, so I’m really excited about the future,” he added.
