  1. *Keys to species codes and coral responses in Additional file 4. Species codes are listed when 5 species (spp.) or fewer are in study. Exposure duration: ‘short’ < 1 week, ‘long’ ≥ 1 week. Coral response is either “Continuous” data or “Binary,” indicating response data from which LOAELs and NOAELs were derived
