What are the consequences of reef morbidity?

Mon, 03/26/2012 - 03:33 -- admintps

Unprotected by breakwaters, fragile land areas become vulnerable to erosion, saltwater intrusion and destruction from waves. For an already damaged reef, regeneration is very slow taking several decades, even under ideal conditions.
