Reef Reminiscences: Ratcheting back the shifted baselines concerning what reefs used to be
Coral reefs appear to be changing in a number of fundamental and detrimental ways. Many reef scientists, comparing coral reefs to canaries in a coal mine, argue that coral reef deterioration is an early warning of major global environmental disruptions in the coming decades. The tragedy of recent coral reef decline is that too few people actually know what coral reefs are supposed to be like, and too few of those who now study reefs witnessed what coral reefs used to be like decades ago.
