Abstract

Christopher Brunner investigated the cumulative impacts of climate change, sedimentation and light attenuation on coral recruits. He found that recruits were twice as sensitive to sediment-induced stress under future climate conditions. His results will be used for revising water-quality management targets in response to a changing climate.
