It bargains a systematic, conceptual framework in addition to sensible suggestions for reef review and recovery. individuals from a number of disciplines speak about engineering, geological, organic, and socioeconomic components to create a textual content that's designed to steer scientists and source managers within the decision-making method from preliminary evaluation of the harm via conceptual recovery layout, implementation, and tracking. a good collection of proper case reviews is applied to demonstrate techniques and demanding situations inherent within the technique of recovery.
