General Information:
Title:Expert opinion on coral tolerance, recovery, and resilience
Identifier:nceas.974
Abstract:
Data set of expert opinion on how Pacific and Caribbean corals will (1) respond to a two month temperature anomaly during solar insolation max based on certain coral phenotypes: morphology, heterotrophy, tissue thickness, distance between corallites, calcification rate, large size, corallite size, association with clade D, and skeletal structure. (2) Coral recovery after 10yrs from this thermal anomaly specifically looking at sexual recruitment, density of recruitment, asexual recruitment, colony regrowth, and calcification rate. (3) Coral resilience after 10yrs from this thermal anomaly.
