      Florida’s coral reefs are experiencing one of the most devastating coral disease outbreaks on-record. William F. Precht (Director, Marine and Coastal Programmes, Dial Cordy & Associates, Inc., Miami, FL) and co-authors (Brooke Gintert, Ryan Fura, Lindsey Precht, Kristian Rogers & Martha Robbart), tell more about the calamitous spread of the disease. Coral reefs are found in more than countries around the world. Most reefs are located between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, in the Pacific Ocean, the Indian Ocean, the Caribbean Sea, the Red Sea, and the Persian Gulf. Corals are also found farther from the equator in places where warm currents flow out of the tropics, such as in.

The ecology of Florida is remarkable due to its climate and diverse ecological regions. From the northwestern panhandle to the Everglades, differences in hydrology, climate, landforms, soil types, flora and fauna shape each ecoregion, creating a complex and unique landscape that has been recognized as a global biodiversity hotspot.

And these ecologically maintained reefs will have a positive effect on surrounding reef areas. Observations of relatively healthy deeper reefs, also referred to as mesophotic coral ecosystems, on Pulley Ridge ( km ( mi) west of Cape Sable, Florida) raised questions as to the ecological role they may play in the replenishment of shallow and other mesophotic coral ecosystems, such as in the Florida Keys and Dry Tortugas.
