A changing climate for coral reef management and adaptive restoration

Line K Bay. Despite significant protection and management, the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) is in long term decline. The World Heritage listed ecosystem is under threat from a number of disturbances – most recently mass coral bleaching and mortality. The scale and intensity of mortality is increasing and is eroding the Reef’s resilience. To avoid…

Invasive native vines: risks and management gaps in Vietnam

Ms Truong Tuyet1 1Thai Nguyen University Of Agriculture And Forestry, Thai Nguyen, Vietnam, 2Murdoch University, Murdoch, Australia Invasive plants are a serious problem for global biodiversity. Infestations can lead to the extinction and endangerment of native species. Under global climate change and human disturbance, some native species have also become marauding invasive weeds. Recently, some…
