Predicting climate-driven regime shifts versus rebound potential in coral reefs

Predicting climate-driven regime shifts versus rebound potential in coral reefs An analysis of 21 coral reefs in the Indian Ocean using data across 17 years that spanned a major climatic disturbance reveals factors that predispose a coral reef to recovery or regime shift from hard corals to macroalgae; these results could foreshadow the likely outcomes of tropical coral reefs to the effects of climate change, informing management and adaptation plans. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Nature Springer Journals

Abstract

An analysis of 21 coral reefs in the Indian Ocean using data across 17 years that spanned a major climatic disturbance reveals factors that predispose a coral reef to recovery or regime shift from hard corals to macroalgae; these results could foreshadow the likely outcomes of tropical coral reefs to the effects of climate change, informing management and adaptation plans.
