Marin Science Seminar Presentation:Homeless Nemo: What Does the Future Hold for Coral Reef Communities? Coral reefs are undoubtedly among the most threatened ecosystems in the world. Studies predict that without increased conservation and restoration efforts a complete collapse is only a few decades away. This talk will focus on the current status of coral reefs around the world, including threats to them and the consequences of those threats.
