Abstract:
During the present 2008-09 monitoring survey, live coral cover presented a pattern of mild increments relative to 2007-08 levels for most reef sites monitored, related in part to what appears to be a recuperation response of M. annularis. Differences were not statistically significant, but the trend represents at least, a reversal from the continued decline of live coral measured until 2007. An exception to this trend was observed at the Acropora palmata finging reef of Tres Palmas in Rincon. This reef is now affected by an infectious disease that was preliminarily identified as 'white pox', also known as 'patchy necrosis' and a trend of declining cover appears to be emerging"--Excutive summary.
