Catchment management and coral reef conservation

Catchment management and coral reef conservation : a practical guide for coastal resource managers to reduce damage from catchment areas based on best practice case studies

This book aims to help people manage coral reefs and other coastal ecosystems; especially to solve problems that flow from nearby catchment (watershed) areas.
