Improved water quality can ameliorate effects of climate change on corals

Scott A. Wooldridge, Terence J. Done
2009 Ecological Applications  
The study provides the first concrete evidence for the oft-expressed belief that improved coral reef management will increase the regional-scale survival prospects of coral reefs to global climate change  ...  Here, using major data sets from the Great Barrier Reef (GBR), Australia, we investigate geographic patterns of coral bleaching in 1998 and 2002 and outline a synergism between heat stress and nutrient  ...  (e) Bayesian belief network showing how (a), (b), and(c), were used to predict (d).  ...

The influence of resilience-based management on coral reef monitoring: A systematic review

Vivian Y. Y. Lam, Christopher Doropoulos, Peter J. Mumby, Chaolun Allen Chen
2017 PLoS ONE  
Indeed, a new approach to reef management has been termed 'resilience-based management' (RBM).  ...  In contrast, monitoring tends to focus on metrics of reef state and has greater taxonomic resolution, which provides comprehensive information on the nature of changes but does not predict the future responses  ...  Acknowledgments This project was funded by an ARC Linkage grant and ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Science grant to PJM and an IPRS to VYYL.  ...
