Request for abstracts:

Reef rehabilitation:

We would like to invite submission of abstracts for the session „Reef
Rehabilitation“ which is part of the ISRS meeting in Bremen (Sept. 19-22nd

The decline of coral reefs worldwide has prompted the need for urgent
development of adequate rehabilitation and restoration methodologies. In many
cases protection of reefs failed to prevent further habitat degradation. Hence,
active measures are numerous, but not all are ecologically compatible. Adequate
concepts of reef restoration, preferably embedded in theories of uw-landscape
ecology, are still in their infancies and state-of-the-art remediation
protocols are rare. Another point for consideration is the overharvesting of
reef organisms for food and ornamental trade, degrading reef health as well.

In this session, we welcome original studies on:

•	Reef rehabilitation and restoration
•	Concepts for reef restoration
•	Reef rehabilitation sites, case studies
•	Mariculture of corals and other reef organisms

Please submit your abstract by May 15 at
Click on ‘Registration’, go to ‘Abstract Submission’, and assign your abstract
to session 14 “Reef rehabilitation”. Send a copy to Buki Rinkevich
(buki at ocean.org.il) and Helmut Schuhmacher (h.schuhmacher at uni-essen.de).
