   Dear coral listers,

   I  am  trying  to  integrate  vulnerability  into  marine conservation
   planning, especially the selection of marine reserves. Has anyone come
   across  any information regarding calculation of a vulnerability index
   for coastal habitats?

   I wonder whether different quantitative and qualitative factors can be
   incorporated to derive a vulnerability index for a habitat.

   Any information would be of great help.

   Many thanks
