  • Reefs at Risk Revisited: Climate-Related Threats Data

    Global (i.e., climate-related) threats to the world's coral reefs were analyzed. These include: past thermal stress (i.e., warming seas and bleaching over the last decade), future thermal stress (ie., projections of future warming in 2030 and 2050); and ocean acidification (i.e., reduced ocean...
