    Abstract

    There is ample evidence that reefs, worldwide, are in a state of serious decline. The rate of loss of coral cover is so rapid that future palaeontologists will note that the world’s coral reefs disappeared on a bedding plane. At the same time as reefs are declining, so is the state of discourse among many members of the coral reef research community. Some of this is alluded to in a recent paper (Sammarco, 2008) which makes a number of useful suggestionsnone of which, it is safe to say, will ever be adopted.
