30 Nov 2002 -
The Great Barrier Reef of Australia is the largest coral reef ecosystem in the world. The health and productivity of the Great Barrier Reef ecosystem is influenced by the nutrients and sediment running off the adjacent catchment. Since 1850, human activities in the catchments bordering the Great Barrier Reef have changed sediment and nutrient runoff to the reef. Catchments and Corals provides the first comprehensive description of the state of the Great Barrier Reef catchment, modern levels of runoff to the reef, and the influence of runoff on coastal reef ecosystems.
