Dear Coral-Listers,

Without any doubt the reef crisis is upon us – but what exact mechanisms affect reef organisms? We’d like to draw your attention to a new issue of Advances in Marine Biology which explores the Population Dynamics of the Reef Crisis. In there, you find articles ranging from human population dynamics to predictions of future coral sizes in the Anthropocene, to population studies of free-living corals, crowns of thorns, invasive brittle stars, gorgonians, community shifts, to coral disease models, large-scale coral growth evaluations, and biophysical connectivity models.


The volume is dedicated to Richard E. Dodge, to thank him for his service to academia and the ISRS (for example, as former editor-in-chief of Coral Reefs and organizer of the 11th ICRS in Ft. Lauderdale) and to wish him well on his continued journey in coral science. The authors of this volume salute him, as will probably many of you.

Thank you

Bernhard Riegl and Charles Sheppard (as editors) and all authors of the volume
