FREE Online Seminar About Reef Ecology

From Deep Sea News:

A new online seminar on coral reef futures sponsored by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies provides about 100 examples in a set of FREE online lectures given by a parade of stars like Terry Hughes, John Pandolfi, and Bob Steneck. It's like a dream course in reef ecology from the comfort of your own home. The only thing lacking is a printable diploma!

Topics covered by the online seminars include:

* The latest science on coral bleaching
* The rising plague of coral disease
