    • Coral disease hotspots in the Caribbean 

      Van Woesik, Robert; Randall, Carly J. (2017-05-01)
      Recent outbreaks of coral diseases in the Caribbean have been linked to increasingly stressful sea-surface temperatures (SSTs). Yet, ocean warming is spatially heterogeneous and therefore has the potential to lead to ...
    • Does dark-spot syndrome experimentally transmit among caribbean corals? 

      Randall, Carly J.; Jordán-Garza, Adán Guillermo; Muller, Erinn M.; van Woesik, Robert (2016-01-20)
      Over the last half-century, coral diseases have contributed to the rapid decline of coral populations throughout the Caribbean region. Some coral diseases appear to be potentially infectious, yet little is known about their ...
    • Effects of temperature on gene expression in embryos of the coral Montastraea faveolata 

      Voolstra, Christian; Schnetzer, Julia; Peshkin, Leonid; Randall, Carly J.; Szmant, Alina M.; Medina, Mónica (2009-12-23)
      Coral reefs are expected to be severely impacted by rising seawater temperatures associated with climate change. This study used cDNA microarrays to investigate transcriptional effects of thermal stress in embryos of the ...
    • Location-specific responses to thermal stress in larvae of the reef-building coral Montastraea faveolata 

      Polato, Nicholas R.; Voolstra, Christian; Schnetzer, Julia; DeSalvo, Michael K.; Randall, Carly J.; Szmant, Alina M.; Medina, Mónica; Baums, Iliana B. (2010-06-23)
      The potential to adapt to a changing climate depends in part upon the standing genetic variation present in wild populations. In corals, the dispersive larval phase is particularly vulnerable to the effects of environmental ...
    • Relationships between the history of thermal stress and the relative risk of diseases of Caribbean corals 

      Randall, Carly J.; Jordán-Garza, Adán Guillermo; Muller, Erinn M.; van Woesik, Robert (2014)
      The putative increase in coral diseases in the Caribbean has led to extensive declines in coral populations. Coral diseases are a consequence of the complex interactions among the coral hosts, the pathogens, and the ...
    • Relationships between the history of thermal stress and the relative risk of diseases of Caribbean corals 

      Randall, Carly J.; Jordán-Garza, Adán Guillermo; Muller, Erinn M.; van Woesik, Robert (2014-07)
      The putative increase in coral diseases in the Caribbean has led to extensive declines in coral populations. Coral diseases are a consequence of the complex interactions among the coral hosts, the pathogens, and the ...
    • Some coral diseases track climate oscillations in the Caribbean 

      Randall, Carly J.; Van Woesik, Robert (2017-12-01)
      Disease outbreaks continue to reduce coral populations worldwide. Understanding coral diseases and their relationships with environmental drivers is necessary to forecast disease outbreaks, and to predict future changes ...
    • Testing methods to mitigate Caribbean yellow-band disease on Orbicella faveolata 

      Randall, Carly J.; Whitcher, Elizabeth M.; Code, Tessa; Pollock, Clayton J.; Lundgren, Ian F.; Hillis-Starr, Zandy Marie; Muller, Erinn M. (2018-05-11)
      Outbreaks of coral diseases continue to reduce global coral populations. In the Caribbean, yellow band is a severe and wide-spread disease that commonly affects corals of the Orbicella spp. complex, significantly impeding ...
