Correction to: Nature Ecology & Evolution, published online 12 November 2018.

In the version of this Article originally published, a technical error meant two proof corrections were not actioned. In the sentence that started “Fishery changes were underpinned…”, a citation to ref. 9 was missing, and that to ref. 22 was misplaced. The sentence should have read: “Fishery changes were underpinned by species’ differential responses to the post-bleaching benthic trajectories, suggesting that projections for reef fisheries that are based on habitat-driven loss of fish biomass (for example ref. 9) have overlooked the potential for increased productivity of low trophic levels22, particularly browsing herbivores on regime-shifted reefs.” These errors have now been corrected in the Article.
