Sediments and herbivory as sensitive indicators of coral reef degradation

Goatley, Christopher H.R.; Bonaldo, Roberta M.; Bathgate (previously Fox), Rebecca; Bellwood, David

Description

Around the world, the decreasing health of coral reef ecosystems has highlighted the need to better understand the processes of reef degradation. The development of more sensitive tools, which complement traditional methods of monitoring coral reefs, may reveal earlier signs of degradation and provide an opportunity for pre-emptive responses. We identify new, sensitive metrics of ecosystem processes and benthic composition that allow us to quantify subtle, yet destabilizing, changes in the...[Show more]
