Description: Outbreaks of the notorious crown-of-thorns starfish now threaten the Coral Triangle, the richest center of coral reef biodiversity on Earth, according to recent surveys by the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies. The starfish-a predator that feeds on corals by spreading its stomach over them and using digestive enzymes to liquefy tissue-were discovered in large numbers by the researchers on reefs in Halmahera, Indonesia, at the heart of the Coral Triangle, which lies between Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands.
