Hello Paul. My big question: what is the main focus of the paper? Your title suggests coral and climate change, but your outline and paragraph goes into anthropogenic influences as well. Will you be discussing how human activities are affecting the climate or the coral or both? Your outline and sources tell me you'll have a good paper, but I'm just trying to make sure there's enough focus to synthesize the information into a 15-min presentation. A big topic like this can sometimes be difficult to summarize.

Keep up the good work. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions or if you'd like feedback on your paper before you post the final draft. Oh by the way, I have a copy of NOAA's 2005 "State of the Coral Reef." Let me know if you think it would be a good source.
