I would like to complement Rupert Ormond’s note about the coverage of 
coral reefs in the IPCC report.  It is covered in:

- Chapter 5: Coastal systems and low-lying areas
- Chapter 6: Ocean systems
- Chapter 29: Small islands
- Chapter 30: The Ocean
- Several other regional chapters
- A cross-chapter box: http://bit.ly/20g0xwQ
- The Technical Summary
- The Summary for Policymakers, as indicated by Rupert

All these products are available on the IPCC web site. There is no doubt 
that coral reefs are the marine ecosystem best covered in the WG2 report 
of IPCC AR5.
