Coral Reefs Under Rapid Climate Change and Ocean Acidification
Atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration is expected to exceed 500 parts per million and global temperatures to rise by at least 2°C by 2050 to 2100, values that significantly exceed those of atExpand

Mangroves enhance the biomass of coral reef fish communities in the Caribbean
Mangrove forests are one of the world's most threatened tropical ecosystems with global loss exceeding 35% (ref. 1). Juvenile coral reef fish often inhabit mangroves, but the importance of theseExpand

One-Third of Reef-Building Corals Face Elevated Extinction Risk from Climate Change and Local Impacts
The conservation status of 845 zooxanthellate reef-building coral species was assessed by using International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List Criteria. Of the 704 species that could beExpand

Estimating leaf area index of mangroves from satellite data
The relationship between the normalised difference vegetation index (NDVI) and leaf area index (LAI) was modelled for mangroves growing on the Caicos Bank, Turks and Caicos Islands. NDVI values wereExpand
