Coral Reefs at the Crossroads – An Introduction

Title:
Coral Reefs at the Crossroads – An Introduction
Authors:
Hubbard, Dennis K.
Abstract:
Coral reefs are complex systems that are difficult to fully understand when viewed from a single perspective. As we have separated ourselves into increasingly smaller and more specific disciplines, we often lose sight of important connections between physical and biological factors and how they can change over different spatial and temporal scales. As stresses on these robust yet fragile systems broaden and deepen, it is becoming increasingly important that we break down artificial disciplinary barriers and ask questions that are difficult to frame from a single scientific perspective. This chapter provides a jumping-off point to examine coral reefs – sitting at both a disciplinary and a temporal crossroads.
