189. Coral Reef Ecology

Description

Coral reefs are widely regarded as some of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet.

Coral reefs are continually under threat from both natural and anthropogenic (human) factors.

This Environmental Studies Factsheet:
• Examines different types and formation of coral reefs.
• Global locations of coral reefs.
• Threats to coral reef ecology.
• Conservation methods of coral reefs.
