Emerging field evidence at CO2 seepage sites suggests that acidified waters do not allow coral survival (Fabricius et al. 2011; Inoue et al. 2013). Until recently, the impacts of ocean acidification and global warming on future coral habitats have been examined on a global scale, without considering the shifts in their distributional ranges (Kleypas et al.
