 •  Resilience Assessment of coral reefs: Assessment protocol for coral reefs, focusing on coral bleaching and thermal stress.
Obura, D.O. and Grimsdith, G. (eds.) 2009.
This protocol defines some basic resilience indicators that can be quantified using rapid assessment methods.  These will serve two primary purposes: 1) to provide simple methods that are applicable in a wide variety of developing country settings; and 2) to provide a first assessment of outcomes in coral reef conservation. Although Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) cannot prevent the stresses that cause coral bleaching.

•  Monitoring functional groups of herbivorous reef fishes as indicators of coral reef resilience: A practical guide for coral reef managers in the Asia Pacific region.
Green, A.L. and Bellwood, D.R. 2009.
Herbivores play a critical role in coral reef resilience by limiting the establishment and growth of algal communities that impede coral recruitment. this document provides practical advice to field practitioners. Key functional groups of herbivores are identified, species are assigned to each functional group, and methods are provided for monitoring their abundance, biomass and size structure.
