189. Coral Reef Ecology

Description

Coral reefs are widely regarded as some of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet. They provide habitat for approximately 25% of all marine species but surprisingly account for a microscopic 0.1% of the world’s ocean surface. 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.
