This study was conducted in Tanjung Rhu, Pulau Langkawi, which is located in the northwest of Peninsular Malaysia. The objective of this study was to measure and compare the sediment fallout rates of Teluk Dedap in Tanjung Rhu with its control site in Teluk Datai during the wet and dry seasons to shed light on the sedimentation problem faced by the coral reefs of north Pulau Langkawi. Sediment fallouts were collected from the spring tidal periods of both the wet and dry seasons. Results showed… Expand
A study on the recovery of Tobago's coral reefs following the 2010 mass bleaching event.
TLDR
The juvenile distribution and the response of individual species to the bleaching event support the notion that Caribbean reefs are becoming dominated by weedy non-framework building taxa which are more resilient to disturbances. Expand

TLDR
Sexual reproduction of the coral Gonlastrea aspel-a in subtropical Okinawa (Japan) was studied by dissection, histology, and laboratory observation, and planulae found in all colonies after the major spawnlng suggest that brooding is for short-distance dispersal. Expand
