What is WCMC Global Coral Disease Database?

WCMC Global Coral Disease Database meaning the World Conservation Monitoring Centre (WCMC) and NOAA maintain the Global Coral Disease Database which is populated with over 2000 records of coral diseases from approximately 155 sources.

A unique combination of coral species, disease, date, and location therefore constitutes a single record
