Summary

The technical report on crown-of-thorns starfish from the National Environmental Research Program Tropical Ecosystems Hub project 1.1 'Monitoring status and trends of coral reefs of the Great Barrier Reef'.

Project summary: This project will continue a unique data set that documents long-term trends in coral reef communities of the Great Barrier Reef (GBR). Regular surveys of fish, coral and coral predators such as crown-of-thorns starfish on 47 reefs since 1992, provide the 'big picture' on the condition of reefs on the GBR and how they are changing over time. This project will employ a range of surveying techniques to detect events likely to have large-scale impacts on reef health, such as coral bleaching, coral disease, cyclones or crown-of-thorns starfish outbreaks.
