Franke, Lena. 2009. The influence of water quality and stress effects on coral reefs on the basis of nutrient indicator algae cover of different dive sites around Koh tao, Thailand.

Written in fulfilment of a degree at the Hogeschool Van Hall Larenstein Univeristy and an internship with the New Heaven Reef Conservation Program.

“This research aims to identify trends in numbers of nutrient indicator algae and it’s correlations with grazers to be able to detect possible changes in numbers over time. Furthermore, water quality has been tested and stress effects per dive site have been assessed and rated to be able to detect possible trends in reef health and the most influencing factors on reef ecology.”
