Figure 7 : Change in bleaching stress occurrence with warm-season temperature trend.

From: Warming Trends and Bleaching Stress of the World’s Coral Reefs 1985–2012

Figure 7

Difference in number of bleaching-level stress events (DHW ≥4 °C-weeks) between the 1985–1991 and 2006–2012 periods compared with warm-season trend for global reef pixels. Solid line shows linear regression; dashed lines are one standard error of estimate (SE = 1.37) above and below this. Histogram shows the proportions of reef pixel residuals distinguished by the lines. Data are provided for the histogram in Table S9.
