Aipysurus laevis sea snakes, photographed on Scott Reef, in the Timor Sea. In an article in this issue, Rick Stuart-Smith and his colleagues describe a way to assess and track biodiversity on coral and rocky reefs that covers a diverse range of fauna from fishes and mobile invertebrates through to reptiles such as these. They show how such detailed surveys can be extended across large scales through coordinated integration of citizen science with scientific monitoring programs. Photograph: Rick Stuart-Smith.
