About this book

Coral reefs have undergone dramatic deterioration in the past two decades. The degradation of these economically and environmentally important resources is evident around the world, from the Caribbean to Australasia. The Coral Reef Restoration Handbook is the first book ever to address the science of coral reef restoration. It offers protocol for impact assessment and planning through design, implementation, and monitoring. Since current technology in ocean engineering and construction allows for a variety of restoration designs, the book develops a scientifically based, conceptual framework for improving reef assessment and restoration strategies. This framework can be used to combat a wide variety of human-induced disturbances to coral reefs worldwide.
