Abstract

Coral communities were investigated on 16 reefs in open and closed bays, in straits, and around capes of different islands of the Bai Thu Long Archipelago (Gulf of Tonkin, South China Sea). Variations observed in the communities of Acropora aspera + Goniopora columna, Goniopora stokesi + Galaxea fascicularis, Acropora aspera, Goniopora columna, and Pavona decussata + Pavona cactus are caused by different ecological conditions and may be linked with sedimentation flux within the water column and near the bottom, as well as with the rate of integral water exchange and resuspension above the coral settlements.
