Abstract

Andreas Dietzel examined demographic trends in corals at large spatial and temporal scales. He found that while few Pacific coral species face an elevated risk of global extinction, long-term shifts in colony sizes indicate declines in reproduction and the spatial scale of mass bleaching events jeopardizes population connectivity and recovery.
