Biologist Mikhail Matz studies how corals evolve. He is hoping to catch evolution in action as corals adapt to the ever-changing ocean environment, which gets warmer and more acidic every year. Here, the natural fluorescence of Acropora millepora is shown under a dissecting microscope. It is a rare morph with cyan-colored tentacles.
