Steve McMellor

Dr Steve McMellor collected data from OpWall sites in Indonesia, Egypt and Honduras and developed a thesis entitled Biotic Indices of Reef Health. His research was based around the development of a classification scheme for coral reef health and also an Index of Biotic Integrity to act as a diagnostic monitoring and management tool. There have been many calls for such an Index in the literature, yet there still remains no widely accepted method for quantifying the health of a coral reef. Such an index will allow the monitoring of management actions as well as increasing social capital by allowing the involvement of many different stakeholders by communicating results of monitoring at many different levels.
