Abstract

Nearshore hard-bottom communities were characterized by low relief, low coral cover (<1%), a visual dominance of octocorals, and a seasonal change in algal abundance. Changes observed on nearshore communities included an increase in algal coverage and a mass mortality of milleporid hydrocorals associated with hyperthermal conditions in nearshore waters during summer 1991. -from Authors
