Why? Warum? Explanations see on my home page http//www.uni-due.de/zoophysiologie . Reef forming corals are under natural and anthropogenic (human) threats worldwide. We now developed a HiTec fluorescence lamp with strong intensity which is superior to commercially available lamps. It can distinguish between living and dead corals in large scale scanning. Even small regenerating coral polyps can be detected by this method in night dives. The corals contain species-specific pigments of the GFP (green fluorescent proteins)-family, which are responsible for their specific color.
