In this section, we attempt to address these questions: What are the environmental threats to coral reefs, their associated habitats and resident species? How do the types and scales of effects vary from local to global? What characteristics make reefs vulnerable? Which particular problems are more common in which areas of the globe? What human and political contexts endanger reefs? Which species are the most heavily impacted and why?
