The Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies says the western seaboard between Perth and Geraldton could end up with coral reefs as rich and varied as the celebrated reefs of Ningaloo in the north-west.

The centre's researcher, Professor John Pandolfi, and Professor Benjamin Greenstein of Cornell College, Iowa, USA, worked from fossil evidence of what happened in West Australian waters during a warm phase in the global climate 125,000 years ago.

Their findings, published in the international journal Global Change Biology, concluded that tropical corals could soon head south once more to escape warming oceans.
