Summary
"Humanity's impact on the natural world can have disastrous effects. Coral Reef Collapse shines a light on the death of coral reefs around the world. With abundant charts and diagrams and large-format photos, this title explores the science behind ocean acidity and rising ocean temperatures to explain the threats facing coral reefs, and considers actions people and governments can take to try to improve the situation. Features include a flow chart showing the disaster's causes and effects, a glossary, references, websites, source notes, and an index. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards."--Publisher's website
