The Eastern Caribbean: a laboratory for studying the resilience & management of coral reefs
by Dr. Bob Steneck (University of Maine)
Caribbean coral reefs have been degrading due to climate change, ocean acidification, pollution and overfishing, all of which can occur simultaneously. Dr. Bob Steneck will discuss his studies of reefs from Anguilla to Grenada, and how local management of natural areas has had a strong positive effect on coral reefs, facilitating their recovery and improving their resilience.
