Just drawing people’s attention to a new article in Coral Reefs in which I utilise the skeletal 'vital effect' on oxygen isotope composition to outline a novel explanation for the well known, but poorly understood dichotomy that corals with branching morphologies (and thin tissue layers) are generally more thermally sensitive than corals with massive morphologies (and thick tissue layers).
Wooldridge SA (online first) Differential thermal bleaching susceptibilities amongst coral taxa: re-posing the role of the host. Coral Reefs.
