The detrimental impacts of anthropogenic disturbances on tropical coral reefs have been studied in detail, but there have been limited efforts to determine which corals might endure these adverse conditions. This study focused on 2 Caribbean corals that have survived better than most in recent years on shallow reefs (5 to 9 m depth) in St. John, US Virgin Islands, and it used demographic models to explore their responses to disturbance. The species studied were Porites astreoides, which has… CONTINUE READING
