[Extract] Hoegh-Guldberg et al. assert that evolutionary responses to climate change in corals are highly improbable in the near future, citing tradeoffs between tolerance to warming and acidification, and two factors related to the integrity of the coral-symbiont partnership. In support, they cite an earlier paper making similar claims, but this reference presents no empirical or theoretical evidence for this thesis.
