Black band disease hits Great Barrier Reef (ABC News in Science)
excerpt from above:
Quote:
An epizootic - the wildlife equivalent of a human epidemic - of black band disease has appeared in the Great Barrier Reef, say Australian researchers.
Scientists, who have been monitoring the progress of the disease, say this is the first time an epizootic of this type has been documented in Australian waters.

Black band disease has decimated coral populations in the Caribbean and researchers are concerned it could spread here.
