Announcement of session #18 on the Biodiversity of Coral Reefs


Coral reefs are well known for their high biodiversity, especially in
the Coral Triangle. It is vital to understand the conditions for this
diversity, also concerning reefs that are less diverse in life, both in
the tropics and in deeper, cold waters. The session aims to deal with
all aspects of coral reef biodiversity, such as genetic diversity,
species richness and habitat heterogeneity. Session contributions are
preferred to be integrative, like dealing with relations between species
richness and habitat heterogeneity or species conservation, but not with
species lists or descriptions of new species. Papers dealing with
interspecific associations of reef-dwelling organisms are also welcomed.
For participants who wish to publish their contribution in proceedings,
we plan to contact an international scientific journal in order to
compile manuscripts for a special issue.
