Corals on dry land

National Geographic has pictures from an island in the South Pacific whose elevation was increased 10 feet by a recent earthquake. This probably won't harm the terrestrial organisms too much, but has wreaked havoc with the sub-tidal organisms, as many of the large sessile ones (e.g., corals) are now poking up out of the water. Poor corals. (Via BoingBoing)
