KAUST discovery on state of remote reefs in Samoa

01 July, 2018

​KAUST discovery is highlighting our publication by Ziegler et al. on the state of coral reef in Upolu, Samoa. In our paper we document the degradation of highly remote reefs in the Pacific. Unaffected by local anthropogenic disturbances, the poor state of these reefs highlights the devastating effect of climate change on coral reefs worldwide.
