Demonstrating the relevance and need of science in planning the future of the Great Barrier Reef and coral reefs worldwide, Oceanographic Processes of Coral Reefs: Physical and Biological Links in the Great Barrier Reef emphasizes multi-disciplinary processes - physical and biological links - that have emerged as the dominant forces shaping and controlling the ecosystem. The book draws heavily on data from coral reefs in Australia, Indonesia, Thailand, and the Philippines.

Oceanographic Processes of Coral Reefs: Physical and Biological Links in the Great Barrier Reef covers:
  • Climate and global change
  • Coastal oceanography
  • Wetlands ecology
  • Estuaries
  • Marine biology
  • Land use management in the tropics
  • Fisheries management
  • Coral Reef ecological modeling
  • Biodiversity and the human impact

    Explore how the ecosystem responds to both physical and biological stimuli, and how they interact
    Understand processes imperative to create sustainable design strategies
    Comprehend the connectivity of biotopes - land, mangroves, seagrass, and corals
    Discover the relationship between managing marine resources and managing adjoining land use
    Learn how fish behavior and migration patterns control fisheries
