Abstract

Deborah Burn studied the differential susceptibility of corals to varying disturbances occurring in Australia's Coral Sea Marine Park. She found that susceptibility to injuries and bleaching was dependent on the taxonomic identity and size of the coral colony as well as the severity of the disturbance.
