Coral coming back, but high temps spell disaster

Elkhorn coral are "coming back like gang-busters," according to the Miami Herald (just what is a gang-buster?), but warmer water temperatures mean trouble for all coral. Coral around Key Biscayne are already showing signs of paling, which is a step toward bleaching -- and coral bleaching is bad. The article has the details.
