Impacts of development of coral reefs

Could anyone refer me to any references that describe impacts of coastal
development (e.g., marinas, hotels) on coral reefs and ways to minimize
those impacts? Also, have there been any studies performed on the viability
of moving or transplanting coral communities that have been stressed by
local conditions (ie: excessive siltation due to boat traffic) to areas
where exisiting communities are thriving? Thanks so much.
