The Diversity Journal is about to launch a Special Issue dedicated to Coral Reef Ecology and Biodiversity.
Maintaining community, organismal, and genetic diversity is vital to ecosystem services and functioning; however, natural and anthropogenic impacts can alter this balance. The focus of this Special Issue of the interdisciplinary open access journal Diversity is one of the most diverse ecosystems on earth: coral reefs. We welcome topics that cover anthropogenic impacts on coral reef ecology and biodiversity, climate change ecology, applied research and management, as well as socioeconomic linkages between humans and coral reefs.
