   I realize that my perspective may not reflect a traditional interpretation  of "research needs" as they apply to the coral 
sciences, but I would implore those involved to consider a 
broader perspective.
 Perhaps connectivity in this context should be expanded beyond 
the interdependence of various marine biomes to consider how best
to "connect" and facilitate the flow of basic information regarding 
coral reefs to the public at large. Coral scientists have to take 
some responsibility for the inefficacy of current campaigns in 
communicating the significant nature of conditions presently 
affecting reef systems around the world.
