"Vulnerability of tropical Pacific fisheries and aquaculture to climate change."  is a book published by SPC (Secretariat of the Pacific Community).  It covers coral reefs, mangroves, seagrass, estuaries, and open ocean.  There were 88 contributors.  The whole book is nearly 1000 pages long..  It is available for download from the SPC website for free, open access.  It can be downloaded chapter by chapter (it is very large so that is recommended).  The first section includes the table of contents, and Chapter 5 is on coral reefs.  It looks to me like it probably provides a lot of information that applies much more widely than the Pacific, so it would probably be very useful to people in the Caribbean and Indian Ocean and Red Sea, as well as the Pacific.  The coral reef chapter authors are Ove Hoegh-Guldberg, Serge Andrefouet, Katharina Fabricius, Guillermo Diaz-Pulido, Janice Lough, Paul Marshall, and Morgan Pratchett, so it should be very good. 


Cheers, Doug
