    This book adopts a multidisciplinary approach to review these issues as they relate to the sustainable management of coral reef tourism destinations. It incorporates coral reef science, management, conservation and tourism perspectives and takes a global perspective of coral reef tourism issues covering many of the world's most significant Price: $   Dying coral reefs are being saved by automation. A team of researchers is developing a solution using robotics and manufacturing techniques to help grow a million new corals each year.

    The Great Barrier Reef is the world's largest coral reef system composed of over 2, individual reefs and islands stretching for over 2, kilometres (1, mi) over an area of approximately , square kilometres (, sq mi). The reef is located in the Coral Sea, off the coast of Queensland, Great Barrier Reef can be seen from outer space . The 41st U.S. Coral Reef Task Force Meeting was held in Washington D.C. from April 1 - 4, in Silver Spring, MD and Washington, DC. The agenda for the public Business Meeting which was held on April 4, at the Main Department of Interior Auditorium, C Street NW, Washington, DC, can be accessed here.

      The issues for coral reef science and management span jurisdictions and scales from locally accessible reefs with high human use to rarely visited remote island and archipelagic regions. The Great Barrier Reef (GBR) has played a substantial role in knowledge sharing and development of international programs of coral reef research and management.

Contemporary pressing issues such as climate change, coral bleaching, coral disease and the challenges of coral reef fisheries are also discussed. In addition, the book includes a field guide that will help people to identify the common animals and plants on the reef, then to delve into the book to learn more about the roles the biota play.

Coral reefs are some of the most valuable ecosystems on the planet. Taking up less than 1% of the planet, coral reefs are home to more than a quarter of all known marine fish.

Without coral, the ocean would lose a huge diversity of life. As a result of the shelter coral reefs offer fish, reefs also provide local communities with fishing grounds.

The aim is to help managers develop response strategies for coping with climate change. The workshops are hosted by NOAA, the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, and The Nature Conservancy. These partners joined with the World Conservation Union (IUCN) on A Reef Manager's Guide to Coral Bleaching, the book that inspired these workshops.

Scientific researchers and marine resource managers from NOAA, Australia's Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, and other institutions around the world wrote a book that can help managers take action to help save their coral reefs from bleaching -- it's called A Reef Manager's Guide to Coral Bleaching.

Innovative strategies to conserve the world's coral reefs are included in a new guide released today by NOAA, and the Australian Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, with author contributions from a variety of international partners from government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and academic institutions.

Coral bleaching has become a major threat to coral reef ecosystems ing occurs when stress to the coral-algal symbiosis causes corals to expel their endosymbiotic algae (zooxanthellae) and, if prolonged or particularly severe, may result in partial or complete coral many sources of stress have caused corals to bleach, “mass” coral bleaching.A Reef Manager's Guide to Coral Bleaching “A Reef Manager’s Guide to Coral Bleaching” is being developed as a result of the presentations and discussions that occurred at the workshop.

The goal of the Guide is to capture the state of the art and the existing knowledge relevant to management of reefs threatened by coral bleaching. If managers are to be able to weigh the tradeoffs of the full suite of management options, scientific efforts need to be broadened across management options and also across coral reef geographies.

The existence of barriers and limits to the effectiveness of existing management strategies needs to be recognized (Barnett et al.,Feagin et.
