Heat Stress to Caribbean Corals in 2005 Worst on Record

Coral reefs suffered record losses as a consequence of high ocean temperatures in the tropical Atlantic and Caribbean in 2005, according to the most comprehensive documentation of basin-scale bleaching to date. Collaborators from 22 countries, including Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute's (STRI) Héctor Guzmán, report in PLoS ONE that more than 80 percent of surveyed corals bleached and over 40 percent of the total surveyed died, making this the most severe bleaching event ever recorded in the basin.

Satellite-based tools from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Coral Reef Watch Program guided site selection for field observations conducted across the greater Caribbean region from June to October 2005. Field surveys of bleaching and mortality in this study surpass prior efforts in both detail and extent. This study also substantially raised the standards for documenting the effects of bleaching and for testing satellite and forecast products. Coral bleaching occurs when stress causes corals to expel their symbiotic algae, or zooxanthellae. If prolonged or particularly severe, it may result in coral death.

"Heat stress during the 2005 event exceeded any observed in the Caribbean in the prior 20 years, and regionally-averaged temperatures were the warmest in at least 150 years," said Mark Eakin, coordinator of NOAA's Coral Reef Watch Program, and former STRI fellow. "This severe, widespread bleaching and mortality will undoubtedly have long-term consequences for reef ecosystems, and events like this are likely to become more common as the climate warms."

The Caribbean is suffering severe bleaching again this year, and in some locations, this bleaching event is worse than in 2005. Not only are temperatures causing further damage to reefs hit hard during the 2005 event, but new locations have also been impacted. The decline of coral reefs has significant economic and ecological impacts on people and communities throughout the world.

New Journal

Management of Biological Invasions is an open access, peer-reviewed, online journal focusing on real experiences in the field of biological invasion management. It admits worldwide contributions on the single (e.g. cells, taxonomy) or multilevel management of bio-invasions (e.g. species interactions, community, habitat and processes), provided they may contribute to a better diffusion of technical and scientific ideas, approaches and results throughout the World. The scope includes management of those non-invasive species, habitats or processes which help reduce the impact of invasive species. The journal is free to authors, institutions and readers. The authors retain copyrights. The languages of publication are English and Spanish.
