Abstract

Besides physical and biological conditions, global efforts to document coral reefs must also account for the behavior of human beings. Human cause direct damage to coral by using destructive fishing techniques and coral mining. Indirection damage is caused by land based human such deforestation, mining agriculture and aquaculture, electric power and desalinization plant operation and waste disposal. This paper describes REEFBASE, a global database on coral reefs being developed by ICLARM, and discusses its integration with a parsimonious set of indicators of coral reef related human behaviors as well as related political, socioeconomic, and cultural variable which can be used to assess, predict, and potentially manage these behaviors.
