energy budget and stress

Hi corallist members,
I need some help to this question.
A 'healthy coral' has enough energy to support growth and reproductive
output. If the corals is now confronted by a stress (e.g. shading,
increased temperature - not including tissue damage!!!), which of the
processes would be cut off first due to reduced energy budget?
Reproductive output? Growth?
If you have any ideas, preferable with references, please, let me know!
Thanks a lot for your help (again).
