More coral babies are staying at home on future reefs. This could be bad because that way no reefs can spread around the world so we will have an isolated piece of coral reef  and it will be the only coral for miles. That is very bad for the animals that live there because they have to stay right there so they can reproduce and eat and live. It will get overpopulated.

“Increasing ocean temperatures due to climate change will soon see reefs retaining and nurturing more of their own coral larvae, leaving large reef systems less interconnected and potentially more vulnerable. “We found that at higher temperatures more coral larvae will tend to stay on their birth reef,” says the lead author of the study.”
