What is the most important part of the coral ecosystem?

    I think the most important part of the coral reef ecosystem is the high biodiversity of the entire system. Most the animals that live in these areas, which are most often remote and undisturbed, can not live in other areas. So these coral reefs, in a sense, provide a safe shelter for these diverse organisms — a sort of orphanage for lost and wandering animals or species. This is especially great in our current climate change as biodiversity is in decline all over the world.

    Another important function of coral reefs is their ability to protect coastlines. They naturally protect erosion to coastlines and sand for beaches.
