I must agree with William Allison
There are many of us in poorer countries that simply cannot afford the costs
(not just the logistics) of attending international conferences. On the
other hand, internet use is very widespread and accessible to a much larger
range of people.
Most coral reefs are situated in countries that generally have far less
funding for conservation/research than developed countries, yet these are
the very people coral scientists should be trying to reach. Web publishing
would be a welcome alternative for those coral reef managers and scientists
who cannot attend the conferences in person.
