NBCNews.com reports on UB study examining coral injury

Published December 27, 2012

A story on NBCNews.com interviews geology professor Howard Lasker, PhD, about his research on how injury affects reproduction in corals. In a recent study, Lasker and former UB master's student Christopher Page found that coral colonies were still producing fewer eggs and spermaries four years after suffering tissue damage — a surprisingly long time. The story also appeared in LiveScience and Huffington Post.
