Abstract

Jeremy Horowitz studied the taxonomy and evolutionary history of black corals (order Antipatharia). He found that more black coral species occur in the Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea than previously thought, described new species and created a new genus, and reconstructed their origins. Managers can use these results to better conserve biodiversity in the Great Barrier Reef.
