Three world-class oceanographic research institutions today announced a collaboration to conduct a global census of coral reef ecosystems aimed at estimating the numbers of reef species and determining their vulnerability to human stressors. Scientists at UCSD's Scripps Institution of Oceanography, the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) and the Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center (PIFSC) of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) will participate in this unprecedented global census of coral reefs (CReefs), one of 17 projects of the Census of Marine Life.
