About the Author

Camilo Mora is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Hawaii, Manoa. He is a reef fish ecologist with broad expertise in the analysis of large-scale patterns of diversity, processes and threats to coral reefs. His approach to research involves large-scale (at times global) assessment of ecological problems.
