    Documents the devastating effects on coral reefs from the hottest year on record with its high sea surface temperatures and record hurricane activity throughout the Caribbean and Atlantic basins. Report was developed from contributions of 71 coral reef scientists and managers to describe the impacts of warming and storms during 2005 and subsequently in 2006. The information is intended for environmental managers and supporting agencies to assist reef recovery by focusing on natural resistance and resilience, along with removing threats from human activities that slow or prevent recovery from the damaging events. Chapter 10, on managing for mass coral bleaching, includes a recommended strategy for integrating resilience into marine protected area networks.
