Abstract

The condition of coastal and marine ecosystems on the Great Barrier Reef and their responses to water quality and disturbances. The Great Barrier Reef marine ecosystems and their associated catchments are part of a dynamic, interconnected system. This chapter provides an up-to-date review of the state of knowledge relating to the conditions and trends of key Great Barrier Reef coastal and marine ecosystems, including current knowledge on key drivers of change and activities leading to pressures and impacts on these ecosystems. Drivers include the impacts of land run-off, coastal development activities and other disturbances such as extreme weather events that influence Great Barrier Reef water quality and the health of marine and coastal ecosystems.
