Coral reefs distant from human population have suffered significantly from bleaching and predator outbreaks in the Red Sea. One-third of all reefs showed signs of degradation. Population projections suggest, based on frequency and severity of disturbances, a cascade of community shifts toward dominance by resilient slow-growers and then toward small, weedy, fast-growers. Careful management is needed to avoid large-scale degradation. Avoidance or control of predator outbreaks should have high priority.
