Mass mortality following disturbance in Holocene coral reefs from Papua New Guinea
The frequency and intensity of disturbance on living coral reefs have been accelerating for the past few decades, resulting in a changed seascape. What is unclear but vital for management is whether this acceleration is natural or coincident only with recent human impact. We surveyed nine uplifted early to mid-Holocene (11,000-3700 calendar [cal] yr B.P.) fringing and barrier reefs along ∼27 km at the Huon Peninsula, Papua New Guinea. We found evidence for several episodes of coral mass...[Show more]
