Short summary
Coral reefs provide critical shoreline protection and important services, such as marine habitat, tourism, fishing, and recreation. However, coral reefs are being threatened by global climate change. If we are to understand how reefs will response to climate change, we must also understand how local conditions may impact the reefs. Our study offers a first glimpse into how human inputs of nutrients might add an additional stressor to reef health.
