Indicators for management of coral reefs and their applications to marine protected areas
Informed planning and decision-making in the management of natural resources requires an ability to integrate complex interactions in ecosystems and communicate these effectively to stakeholders.
Indicators on the status and trends of ecosystems in the Dutch Caribbean
The Caribbean islands of Bonaire, Saba, St.Eustatius, Aruba, Curacao and St. Maarten are part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The islands have a rich biological diversity and a variety of globally
From fronds to fish: the use of indicators for ecological monitoring in marine benthic ecosystems, with case studies from temperate Western Australia
TLDR
The development, utilisation and analysis of indicators for monitoring in marine benthic habitats, and important advances made in recent years are outlined, and priority areas for research and pressing knowledge gaps are highlighted.
Assessing the ecological effects of human impacts on coral reefs in Bocas del Toro, Panama
TLDR
Thehard coral species Porites furcata dominated the reefs in highly impacted areas and showed a strong recovery after bleaching and a higher tolerance to turbidity and eutrophication compared to other hard coral species in the bay.
Review of the Fisheries Indicators for Monitoring the Impacts of Fishing on Fish Communities
ABSTRACT The high demand for fish products has led to important economic issues including the emergence of new markets, especially in developing countries where fishing represents an important

Biological monitoring and tropical biodiversity in marine environments: a critique with recommendations, and comments on the use of amphipods as bioindicators
TLDR
The ability to assess the effectiveness of current monitoring programmes to protect the marine environment at regional and national scales does not currently exist and the natural variability of systems is problematic and must be documented in order to distinguish natural from anthropogenic changes in environmental conditions.
The importance of regional differences in hard coral recruitment rates for determining the need for coral restoration
TLDR
This study examined recruitment rates of scleractinian and milleporan corals in three different reef systems and assessed the potential for rapid natural reef recovery based on coral recruitment rates.
Effects of eutrophication on reef-building corals
TLDR
The results suggest that suspended particulate matter may be an energy source for reef corals, increasing growth up to a certain maximum concentration and reduction of growth occurs due to smothering, reduced light levels and reduced zooxanthellae photosynthesis.

Responses of coral reefs and reef organisms to sedimentation
TLDR
Data is needed on the threshold levels for reef orgarusms and for the reef ecosystem as a whole the levels above which sedimentation has lethal effects for particular species and above which normal functioning of the reef ceases.
