Abstract

In 2010, an expedition of the Institute of Marine Biology on the R/V Akademik Oparin revisited and surveyed a number of coral reefs of Vietnam, whose species composition and structure had been first described a quarter of century ago. No substantial changes were found in the geomorphological structure of reefs of the Nam Su and Tho Chu islands in the Gulf of Siam and the Con Dao and Thu islands situated outside the gulf. Marked changes were found in the abundance of some species of associated macrobenthos. The current status of coral reefs is described and the causes of the observed changes are analyzed (anthropogenic influence, etc.).
