Collaborative Guide: A Reef Manager's Guide to Coral Bleaching
The guide, A Reef Manager’s Guide to Coral Bleaching, is the result of a collaborative effort by over 50 scientists and managers to: (1) share the best available scientific information on climate-related coral bleaching; and (2) compile a tool kit of currently available strategies for adaptive management of coral reefs in a changing climate. The result is a compendium of current information, tools, and practical suggestions to aid managers in their efforts to protect reefs in a way that maximizes reef resilience in the face of continuing climate change. The Guide is a joint publication of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, with author contributions from a variety of international partners from government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and academic institutions. Dr. Jordan West of EPA’s Office of Research and Development was a major contributor to the Guide as a chapter author and through participation in the final review and editing process for the entire document.
