'Coral Disease Handbook: Guidelines for Assessment, Monitoring and Management'
Date:5/5/2009

University of Guam Associate Professor Laurie Raymundo is senior editor and co-author of a new book on the etiology and management of coral diseases, "Coral Disease Handbook: Guidelines for Assessment, Monitoring & Management."

The book summarizes the most recently developed methods for studying the ecology, and mitigating the damage, of coral diseases. Accompanying the book is a set of identification cards for identifying diseases and syndromes known globally.

Designed for reef managers by international experts in coral disease, the Handbook outlines procedures for describing indicators, measuring impacts, monitoring outbreaks, assessing causes, and managing reefs to minimize losses due to disease. This handbook helps managers not only to document and manage disease on their reefs, but also enables them to contribute to our scientific understanding of this grave and increasing threat.
