Bleaching and hurricane disturbances to populations of coral recruits in Belize

  title={Bleaching and hurricane disturbances to populations of coral recruits in Belize},
  author={Peter J. Mumby},
In 1998, coral populations in Belize were disturbed sirnultaneously by a severe coral bleaching event and Hurricane Mitch. The impact of these disturbances was assessed for naturally occurring populations of coral recruits (2 to 20 mm diameter), at a depth of 8 to 10 m on the forereef of Glovers Atoll. Bleaching took place at aii 4 study sites but the hurricane only affected 2 sites, enabling the effects of bleaching to be compared to those arising from bleaching plus hurncane damage… CONTINUE READING
