Dear Coral-List,
I'd like to draw your attention to two recent and inter-related studies 
on coral resistance to and recovery from bleaching, focused on 
Montastraea faveolata from the Mesoamerican Reef.

Carilli J, Norris RD, Black B, Walsh S, McField M. (2009) Local 
stressors reduce coral resilience to bleaching. PLoS One 4(7): e6324.

Carilli J, Norris RD, Black B, Walsh S, McField M. (2009) Century-scale 
records of coral growth rates indicate that local stressors reduce 
coral thermal tolerance threshold. Global Change Biology 
Go to link above for "early view," or email me for a pdf of the proof 
if you'd like.
