Newitz, Annalee (2013): Scatter, adapt, and remember

Newitz, Annalee (2013): Scatter, adapt, and remember. How humans will survive a mass extinction. 1st ed. New York: Doubleday. ISBN 978-0385535915

Couce, E.; et al. (2013): Tropical coral reef habitat in a geoengineered, high-CO 2 world

Couce, E.; Irvine, P. J.; Gregorie, L. J.; Ridgwell, A.; Hendy, E. J. (2013): Tropical coral reef habitat in a geoengineered, high-CO 2 world. In Geophys. Res. Lett., pp. n/a. DOI 10.1002/grl.50340.

" We apply statistical Bioclimatic Envelope Models to project changes in shallow water tropical coral reef habitat as a single niche (without resolving biodiversity or community composition) under various representative concentration pathway and SRM scenarios, until 2070."
