Dear coral-list,
The dead-line date for submission to 10ICRS is approaching (25 December
Please consider submitting your abstract to our mini-symposium:
2-11 Coral Reefs and Global Change 5: Reef and Societal Implications of
Bleaching (Al Strong, William Skirving, and Ove Hoegh-Guldberg)
While we are gathering much knowledge about the physical and chemical
changes that are occurring in the world's oceans and the resulting changes
to the physiology of organisms such as reef-building corals, we know less
about how reefs will change as we continue to warm the earth.  These
questions, however, are critical if we are to understand how changes to the
biology of coral reefs translate as reduced opportunities, income and
livelihoods for the many millions of people that depend on them.  A central
focus of this session will be the accuracy and credibility of projections of
reef health over the next 50 years.  Questions will be asked as to how coral
reefs might change as coral cover is reduced, how these changes will affect
reduced reef biodiversity and productivity, and how changes to these
elements will affect human use.

Best wishes,
