Can anyone give me a list and perhaps ref papers on various indicators
species for reef health? Soft corals seem to be a type of indicator?
Successful settlemt of certain types of hard corals may also be
indicative of a reef's ability to adapt to water clarity and conditions?
Any other species that would indicate reef adaptation to man-induced
environmental changes - or reef degradation?
R&D aspects currently underway and on-going field studies are also
applicable and of interest to me.
Please reply to my email address. Many thanks.
Be advised that I have not received much return input concerning
"accceptable" water quality parameters on waste loads on reefs from
human developmt...= hence more research is needed in this subject?
