Proceedings of the 12th International Coral Reef Symposium, 2012 is now available in ReefBase

12th  International Coral Reef Symposium, 2012 is now available in ReefBase. The 12th International Coral Reef Symposium (ICRS 2012), held in Cairns, Queensland, Australia from July 9-13th, 2012, was attended by nearly 2000 delegates. The program included over 1500 talks and posters. The Proceedings contains almost 200 contributions from scientists around the world arising from the Symposium. Full papers having been peer-review by experts in the field. The Procceding is now available online in ReefBase publication and ICRS2012 proceedings section.

The Proceedings encompass a broad spectrum of coral reef science, and demonstrate a growing expansion from the biological and earth sciences to non-traditional disciplines, including the social sciences and economics. The trend in earlier ICRS Symposia, towards a larger contribution from the fields of conservation planning and management, continued in Cairns in 2012. The Symposium also included an increased focus on climate change and ocean acidification, as well as reef management and governance issues including the Coral Triangle Initiative.

ReefBase hopes that the Proceedings will provide a helpful reference and encourages this information to be shared. The publications may be downloaded through the ReefBase website and ICRS 2012 proceedings section.
