About the amazing cover image ...
Our augmented reality cover was created using time-lapse photography and microscopy to show how coral tissues adapt to climate-related stress. QUT researchers Dr Luke Nothdurft and Brett Lewis are studying the impact of large amounts of sediment falling on coral colonies after tropical storms to better understand how coral responds to fragmentation and rebuilds. This provides vital clues to unlocking improvements to the most efficient reef restoration methods, which currently involves fragmenting adult corals, growing these fragments in coral nurseries and re-attaching the new adult colonies to degraded reefs.

Brett and Luke’s work has created some incredible visual media that has been viewed more than 10 million times online, has featured in dozens of documentaries for agencies such as the BBC, ABC and PBS, and has been covered by hundreds of news media outlets. The amazing visual research is also being used in museums and educational institutions in more than 15 countries – with the aim of inspiring and bringing the public closer to the issues facing coral reefs around the world.
