Palau's coral reefs show differential habitat recovery following the 1998 bleaching event

coral recovery rate is directly linked to human environmental factors a promising sign for recovery in other regions.

"Factors such as river pollution, sedimentation, and use changes such as fishing pressures are all controllable factors," says van Woesik. "Theyre added to global effects of greenhouse gas emissions that affect climate change. The take-home message is that we can accelerate the recovery rate of coral reefs by adapting human behavior and reducing local pressure on reefs; this research provides encouragement and incentive for local management.

"Clearly, action is required at both ends of the political spectrum both globally to reduce greenhouse emissions, but also locally to enhance reef resilience," says van Woesik.

Van Woesiks research appears in the April 2007 issue Coral Reefs, the journal of the International Society for Reef Studies. He will next set up research sites in several other locations, including the Great Barrier Reef and Mexicos Yucatan Peninsula.
