The Coral Reef recovery guide is the 1st released quantity dedicated to the technology of coral reef recovery. It bargains a systematic, conceptual framework besides sensible options for reef review and recovery. members from quite a few disciplines speak about engineering, geological, organic, and socioeconomic components to create a textual content that's designed to lead scientists and source managers within the decision-making technique from preliminary overview of the damage via conceptual recovery layout, implementation, and tracking. a good choice of correct case experiences is applied to demonstrate suggestions and demanding situations inherent within the means of recovery.
