For those not familiar with the International Society for Reef Studies
(ISRS), the Society was founded in 1980 and membership has increased
rapidly in recent years.  Membership presently stands at over 750 from
over 50 countries worldwide.  The principal objective of the Society is
to promote for the benefit of the public, the production and
dissemination of scientific knowledge and understanding of coral reefs,
both living and fossil.

To achieve its objectives the Society collaborates with Springer to
produce the quarterly journal Coral Reefs.  This large-format journal is
issued free of charge to all members of the Society, and concentrates on
quantitative and theoretical coral reef studies, including experimental
and laboratory work, and modeling. The Society also holds annual
meetings and co-sponsors other gatherings, prints and distributes the
newsletter Reef Encounter, and raises funds and receives contributions
by way of subscriptions and donations.
