Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,

Biological Conservation has published, Assessing relative resilience potential of coral reefs to inform management. The authors examined examined a resilience assessment of reefs in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and created criteria for identifying areas for six types of management actions. You may download the full-text using the link above.

As always, if we've missed anything, please feel free to let me know. You may simply reply to this message, or you may email me directly at nwehner [at] openchannels.org.

Happy reading,
-Nick Wehner, OpenChannels Project Manager
