Hope for staghorn

Hemond, E. M., & Vollmer, S. V. (2010). Genetic diversity and connectivity in the threatened staghorn coral (*Acropora cervicornis*) in Florida. *PloS one*, *5*(1), e8652. The punchline to this paper reads as follows – ” Despite the current patchiness of *A. cervicornis* in Florida, the relatively high genetic diversity and connectivity within Florida suggest that this population may have sufficient genetic variation to be viable and resilient to environmental perturbation and disease.”
