Mangroves enhance the biomass of coral reef fish communities in the Caribbean
It is shown that mangroves are unexpectedly important, serving as an intermediate nursery habitat that may increase the survivorship of young fish in reef fish population dynamics.

One-Third of Reef-Building Corals Face Elevated Extinction Risk from Climate Change and Local Impacts
The Caribbean has the largest proportion of corals in high extinction risk categories, whereas the Coral Triangle has the highest proportion of species in all categories of elevated extinction risk.
Contrasting Patterns of Coral Bleaching Susceptibility in 2010 Suggest an Adaptive Response to Thermal Stress
The pattern of susceptibility among coral genera documented here is unprecedented and lends support to the hypothesis that corals in regions subject to more variable temperature regimes are more resistant to thermal stress than those in less variable environments.
Coral reef habitat mapping: how much detail can remote sensing provide?
Satellite and airborne remote-sensing methods for mapping Caribbean coral reefs are evaluated and detailed habitat-mapping can be conducted more accurately and cheaply with CASI, which was significantly more accurate than satellite sensors and aerial photographs.

Measurement of seagrass standing crop using satellite and digital airborne remote sensing
The standing crop of seagrass is highly sensitive to environmental disturbance. We evaluate 3 optical remote sensing methods for measuring standing crop in the tropical Western Atlantic. Extensive…
