"Scientists can help by undertaking solution-focused research, by participating more vigorously in policy debates to improve coral reef legislation and implementation, and by sending the clear message that reefs can still be saved if we try harder." Hughes et al. 2010. Trends in Ecology and Evolution 25: 619-680.
