Life history and stress response of Scleractinian corals -- Chemical-biological characteristics of coral reef ecosystem at micro/nano scale: effect of multiple and synergistic stresses -- Coupling remote sensing and coral annual band data to investigate the history of catchment land use and coral reef status -- a review of coral studies of the Ryukyu Island arc to reconstruct its long-term landscape history -- Producing plaster: traditional uses and knowledge of coral on Ishigaki Island, Okinawa -- Possible articulations between the practices of local inhabitants and academic outcomes of landscape history: ecotourism on Ishigaki Island -- Response of coral reefs to global warming -- Atmospheric deposition of reactive nitrogen as a regional-scale eutrophication stress on the coral reef ecosystem.
This book aims to illuminate coral reefs which comprise a symbiotic system coexisting among ecosystems, landforms, and humans at various levels and to provide a scientific basis for its reconstruction. The authors conducted an interdisciplinary project called "Coral Reef Science" from 2008 to 2012 and obtained novel results and clues to unite different disciplines for a coral reef as a key ecosystem.
