Ana Palacio, from the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, places a piece of Orbicella Faveolata coral into a holding tank after collecting the sample from an area of living coral reef off of the South Florida coast on May 20, 2016 in Miami, Florida. The team of researchers from Andrew Baker's lab is researching the affect of warming and ocean acidification on coral in South Florida. They are part of a world wide response to try and save the marine invertebrates from the unprecedented bleaching of coral that is taking place around the world from places such as the Great Barrier Reef in Australia to the reefs off of the coast of Florida.
