Coral reefs are being degraded worldwide by several reasons such as; human activities, increases in cyclone intensity, climate warming, bleaching and so on. The increasing frequency and severity of anthropogenic impacts throughout the global ocean have an Cited by: 1.   Despite their great economic and recreational value, coral reefs are severely threatened by pollution, disease, and habitat destruction. Once coral reefs are damaged, they are less able to support the many creatures that inhabit them. When a coral reef supports fewer fish, plants, and animals, it also loses value as a tourist destination.

  Introduction. The worldwide decline of coral reefs over the past several decades has been particularly devastating in the Caribbean where reefs have sustained massive losses, especially of reef-builders such as Acropora cervicornis, A. palmata, and Orbicella spp. (Gardner et al., ; Hoegh-Guldberg et al., ).These declines were driven and continue to be affected by disease and other Cited by: Coral reefs are essential to fisheries, tourism, and protecting beaches from erosion.

The consequences of coral bleaching and reef degradation include negative impacts to species composition and marine system health. Ecological impacts of coral bleaching events include: Bleached corals are likely to experience reduced growth rates, decreased reproductive capacity, increased susceptibility to diseases and elevated mortality rates.

Coral reefs are sometimes destroyed in fishing when poison or dynamite are used to catch fish and by the harvesting of coral for use in jewelry. During the s, many previously unknown diseases began attacking coral reefs worldwide, causing rapidly spreading damage. Coral reefs are one of Earth’s most productive ecosystems — both in terms of biology and cold, hard cash.

Healthy coral reef ecosystems do everything from supporting millions of jobs to protecting lives and valuable coastal infrastructure, like hotels and roads, from storms and waves.

of conventional stresses, the threat of mass coral bleaching has recently emerged, leading to what has been widely acknowledged as a 'coral reef crisis'3, 4.

Mass coral bleaching has affected hundreds to thousands of kilometres of reefs simultaneously. It has caused stress, and in many cases extensive coral mortality, to nearly every coral reef.

THE ECONOMIC VALUE OF HEALTHY REEFS Coral reef fisheries are an important source of food and income for local populations. In the Philippines, for example, coral reefs supply between 11 and 29 percent of the total fisheries production In addition, the extraordinary biodiversity of coral reefs provides scientific, pharmaceutical, and.

tourism, and shoreline protection services due to coral reef degradation. A number of limitations and caveats apply to this analysis. First, it is only a preliminary exploration of the economic value of coral reef goods and services on a region-wide basis.

Many of the statistics for this analysis were com-piled and synthesized from the Size: KB. Coral reefs, the “rainforests of the sea,” are some of the most biodiverse and productive ecosystems on earth. They occupy less than one percent of the ocean floor, yet are home to more than a quarter of all marine species: crustaceans, reptiles, seaweeds, bacteria, fungi, and over species of fish make their home in coral reefs.

dioxide levels are causing ocean acidification that may further accelerate coral reef loss. The death of corals leads in turn to the loss of most of the fish and invertebrate populations that they support.

These encourage the search for theories about reef structure and dynamics, and the use of experimentation, modeling.

In their Report “Global trajectories of the long-term decline of coral reef ecosystems” (15 Aug., p. [][1]), J. M. Pandolfi et al. advocate a novel interpretation of the timing and causes of the worldwide decline of reef-building corals.

Expanding on an earlier paper ([1][2]), they conclude that corals have been in decline for centuries and that overfishing was the leading cause. They Cited by: A coral reef is an underwater ecosystem characterized by reef-building are formed of colonies of coral polyps held together by calcium coral reefs are built from stony corals, whose polyps cluster in groups.

Coral belongs to the class Anthozoa in the animal phylum Cnidaria, which includes sea anemones and sea anemones, corals secrete hard carbonate.Causes Of Coral Reef Degradation. Coral reefs throughout the world are experiencing various levels of decay.

While only ten percent of the world’s overall coral reef population has been completely destroyed, in hard-hit places like the Philippines over 70 percent of coral reefs have been lost, while just a measly 5 percent can be said to be in truly good condition.
