Schematic model of impact on coral calcification rate by land development. (

<p>a) Fluctuation of absolute coral calcification rate is controlled by river input, which is related to land development in winter due to sugar cane harvest, as suggested by the present study. (b) Reduction of thermal tolerance threshold <a href="http://www.plosone.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pone.0088790#pone.0088790-Carilli1" target="_blank">[9]</a>, <a href="http://www.plosone.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pone.0088790#pone.0088790-Wooldridge1" target="_blank">[10]</a>.
