Abstract
Australia, along with the entire world, faces the tremendous challenge of climate change over the coming decades. Along with its impacts on a wide variety of global ecosystems, climate change has the potential to have long-term impacts on Australia's Great Barrier Reef (GBR). Among the most serious of these are the phenomenon of coral bleaching (or, more properly, bleaching mortality) and its attendant effects on the reef's biodiversity.
