Summary
Abstract: A number of Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) research activities involve monitoring different aspects of coral reefs. Surveys of coral community structure, composition and diversity were carried out at nearshore reefs of the Great Barrier Reef, Australia. 466 sites on 96 reefs between Mackay and Cooktown (latitude 14-21 degrees South) were surveyed between 1994 and 1997 to a depth of ...
