Our nation’s coast is a complicated management area where no single delineation provides all of the demographic statistics needed to address the full range of policy and management issues.

As a result, several different coastal delineations are currently being used, yielding a variety of US coastal population statistics. This paper proposes a simple model for generating and applying coastal.

ABSTRACT Coral reefs are among the most diverse ecosystems on the planet but are declining because of human activities.

Despite general recognition of the human role in the plight of coral reefs, the vast majority of research focuses on the ecological rather than the human dimensions of reef ecosystems, limiting our understanding of social relationships with these environments as well as.

Volume 1 (mb) ; Volume 2 (mb). A defining theme of the 11th International Coral Reef Symposium was that the news for coral reef ecosystems are far from encouraging. Climate change happens now much faster than in an ice-age transition, and coral reefs continue to suffer fever-high temperatures as well as sour ocean conditions.

Corals may be falling behind, and there appears to be no special silver bullet remedy. Reef monitoring by Reef Check Indonesia (from ) reported that a decline in the average of live coral cover ranged between % [3].

This report is the third in an ongoing series of assessments of the condition of coral reef ecosystems in the United States and Pacific Freely Associated states, and the second report to focus specifically on summarizing the results of coral reef ecosystem monitoring activities carried out by federal, state, territorial, commonwealth, private, academic, and nongovernmental partners (Figure A).

"This booklet provides the draft executive summary and key findings from the Coral Reef Ecosystem Monitoring Report of the Mariana Archipelago: (in review). The full report is a comprehensive analysis of the Pacific Reef Assessment and Moni. Unfortunately, there were no baseline data on the coral and reef fish communities in large parts of the region to determine the full extent of the bleaching damage.

"Coral ecosystems are a source of food for millions; protect coastlines from storms and erosion; provide habitat, spawning and nursery grounds for economically important fish species; provide jobs and income to local economies from fishing, recreation, and tourism; are a source of new medicines, and are hotspots of marine biodiversity.

In 48 of the 50 states of the United States, the county is used for the level of local government immediately below the state itself. Louisiana uses parishes, and Alaska uses several states in New England, some or all counties within states have no governments of their own; the counties continue to exist as legal entities, however, and are used by states for some administrative.
