Brief description

This record provides an overview of the scope and research output of NESP Marine Biodiversity Hub Synthesis Study - "National trends in coral species following heatwaves". For specific data outputs from this project, please see child records associated with this metadata.
--------------------

This project engaged coral taxonomic experts to annotate existing Reef Life Survey (RLS) photoquadrats taken across northern Australia before and after major disturbances, to allow:
• Quantification of the spatial and species-level responses of Australian corals to the 2016 and 2017 marine heatwave and mass bleaching events (and cyclones that occurred during this period).
• Identification of the species most threatened by warming and cyclones, and species likely to respond best to restoration efforts.
• Contribution to a coral-specific analysis to the next national State of the Environment report.

Planned Outputs
• Dataset on % cover of corals to highest taxonomic resolution possible from surveys around northern Australia before and after the 2016 mass bleaching event.

In addition to NESP (DAWE) funding, this project is matched by an equivalent amount of in-kind support and co-investment from project partners and collaborators.
Purpose
To quantify responses of coral reefs to marine heatwaves and bleaching events, and identify at-risk species.
