Study draws link between coral loss in Caribbean to high human population

The Canadian Press: "HALIFAX - Coral reefs in the Caribbean are being destroyed by ever-growing human populations, according to a new study that goes so far as to recommend controls over how many people can live near the imperilled species.
Scientists studied 322 coral sites around 13 countries and found for the first time that the greatest pressure on the valuable marine life forms is heavy concentrations of people."
