Dear Colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to the following meeting session:

"Metabolism Studies/Observations of Coral Reef Communities"

at the 13th ICRS in Hawaii, June 19-24 2016.

*Session Description*

Studies of coral reef metabolism provide system-level information on the
health and status of coral reef ecosystems. Is the system producing
sufficient organic matter to support the ecosystem at all trophic levels?
Is the system producing sufficient calcium carbonate to maintain the
architectural complexity of the reef-framework and keep up with bio-erosion
and sea-level rise?  Studies of coral reef metabolism can provide valuable
information about the status and functioning of a system and provide a
baseline against which change over time can be judged.


*Abstract Deadline: 15 January 2016 *
