"Dear Corallist

I would like to draw your attention to The Coral Trait Database. The Database is described in an open access publication in Scientific Reports available for download at the following link.


The Coral Trait Database houses physiological, morphological, ecological, phylogenetic and biogeographic trait information at: https://coraltraits.org<https://coraltraits.org/> with the vision of being an inclusive and accessible data resource to more rapidly advance the science and management of a sensitive ecosystem at a time of unprecedented environmental change. The database is open and accessible to the public.

We have also published an opinion piece on the use of traits to advance coral reef science. Please contact the first author, Joshua Madin jmadin at gmail..com<mailto:jmadin at gmail.com> or myself a pdf or use the link below if you have a subscription to the journal
