Comparing Coral Reef Survey Methods. Unesco Reports in Marine Science No. 21 Report of a Regional Unesco/UNEP Workshop on Coral Reef Survey Management and Assessment Methods in Asia and the Pacific (Phuket, Thailand, December 13-17, 1982).
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France). Div. of Marine Sciences.
This report includes nine papers prepared for a workshop on coral reef survey management and assessment methods in Asia and the Pacific. The papers are: "A Contrast in Methodologies between Surveying and Testing" (Charles Birkeland); "Coral Reef Survey Methods in the Andaman Sea" (Hansa Chansang); "A Review of Coral Reef Survey and Management Methods in Singapore" (L. M. Chou); "Coral Reef Assessment and Management Methodologies Currently Used in Malaysia" (M. W. R. N. De Silva); "Survey of Philippine Coral Reef using Transect and Quadrat Techniques" (E. D. Gomez and A. C. Alcala); "Problems in the Study of Coral Communities" (Suraphol Sundara and Anond Snidvongs); "A Review of Coral Reef Survey and Assessment Methods Currently in Use in Indonesia" (Sukarno); "Parid Survey Techniques to Determine Distribution and Structure of Coral Communities" (J. R. E. Harger); and "Large Area Surveys of Coral Reefs" (R. A. Kenchington). In addition, an overview ("Sources and Destitations of Nutrients in Coral Reef Systems" (Charles Birkeland) and an outline of survey goals and conclusions regarding the general applicability of methods to differing objectives are included. Formal recommendations concerning limitation of trade in corals, future harmonization of general survey methods, and formation of an organizational structure to facilitate international work on coral reef problems are developed.
