      DAO SPECIAL 5:

*The Role of Environment and Microorganisms in Diseases of Corals*

Over the last several decades, diseases have become increasingly 
important in the decline of coral reefs. Yet the study of coral diseases 
is still nascent. Most disease conditions are not well characterized, 
the causative microbial agents are known for only a few, and we are only 
beginning to comprehend the role of environmental factors in disease 
emergence and impact. In this second special issue of DAO on coral 
diseases, we present an update on coral disease research, including new 
advances in the microbiology of causative agents and the role of climate 
as a driver of disease. We also consider management needs in light of a 
rapidly changing environmentof coral diseases.
