This short documenaty explores the issues of sustainability on coral reefs during an outbreak of crown-of-thorns starfish. The crown-of-thorns starfish is a predator of coral. In low densities, this starfish promotes diversity in coral reef ecosystems, because it prefers to feed on fast growing Acropoid coral. This gives slower growing coral space to establish and grow. Dr. Steve Palumbi discusses how when the number of these starfish grows, entire sections of reef can be wiped out. The question is whether named disturbances can increase the number of these naturally occurring predators. “Crown of Thorns” is part of a series of videos on the oceans.
