Ongoing Monitoring of Tortugas Ecological Reserve: Assessing the Consequences of Reserve Designation

Purports to develop a multiscale model to measure "the refuge effect" of a marine reserve by analyzing conditions in a relatively pristine marine reserve to compare with less pristine nearby marine park environments. Uses the Tortugas Ecological Reserve within Dry ...

Understanding differential patterns in coral reef recovery: chronic hydrodynamic disturbance as a limiting mechanism for coral colonization

Coral reefs are subject to numerous physical disturbances, and post-disturbance coral recovery potential depends on subsequent re-colonization of impacted habitat. We examined divergent recovery trajectories at 2 proximal reefs disturbed by ship groundings that resulted in clearly delineated areas of ...
