Terrestrial runoff and sedimentation have been implicated in a variety of impacts on scleractinian corals. However, despite accumulating evidence, little work has been done to investigate their influence on coral disease development. This study examined the role that river runoff and the associated sedimentation could play in affecting the prevalence of the coral disease “white syndrome” in SW Madagascar.
A monitoring programme was established in order to support community based seaweed farming in south-west Madagascar by providing scientific information on the effects of physico-chemical and health factors influencing the growth of Kappaphycus alvarezii(cottonii).
This paper traces the evolution and expansion of community management in the Western Indian Ocean and present the first ever inventory and assessment of the region’s locally managed marine areas (LMMAs).
Population-Health-Environment (PHE) is an interdisciplinary model of programme design which recognises the complex interconnections between people, their health and their environment.
With a heavy focus on programme development, refining of monitoring and research objectives, and active leadership in lionfish market development nationally, 2013 has been a defining year for Blue Ventures’ conservation programmes in Belize.
