Title: Status of the Coral Reefs of Maldives after the Bleaching Event in 1998
Authors: Zahir, H.
ASFA Terms: Coral reefs
Issue Date: 2000
Abstract: A pilot reef monitoring study was conducted in 1998 to assess the extent of coral bleaching in the Maldives. The aims of this monitoring exercise were: 1. To quantitatively document the post-bleaching status of the shallow-water coral communities on the reefs of the north, central and southern regions of Maldives. 2. To estimate bleaching-induced coral mortality by comparing data yielded by the pilot survey with data from previous surveys, especially those sites for which historical data are available.
