Coral Reefs at the Crossroads

Springer | Paleoenvironmental Sciences | August 28. 2016 | ISBN-10: 9401775656 | 300 Pages | pdf | 15.5 MB

Editors: Hubbard, D.K., Rogers, C.S., Lipps, J.H., Stanley, Jr., G.D. (Eds.)
First single volume in 35 years examining reefs from a wide variety of perspectives
Brings together coral reef experts that cross over disciplinary boundaries
Provides a jumping-off point to examine coral reefs - sitting at both a disciplinary and a temporal crossroads
Topics include coral calcification, ocean acidification, photosymbiosis, bioerosion, reef accretion, physical and biological drivers, changes in coral reefs and more

In this book, contributors from diverse backgrounds take a first step toward an integrated view of reefs and the significance of their recent decline. More than any other earth system, coral reefs sit at a disciplinary crossroads. Most recently, they have reached another crossroads - fundamental changes in their bio-physical structure greater than those of previous centuries or even millennia. Effective strategies to mitigate recent trends will require an approach that embraces the myriad perspectives from across the scientific landscape, but will also need a mechanism to transform scientific understanding into social will and political implementation.
