Far fewer studies have investigated tolerance to natural stressors other than high temperature, but an experimental study of the coral Acropora yongei exposed to 26 [+ or -] 5 [degrees]C suggests that short-term exposure to cold stress (<5 d) may be more detrimental to photosynthesis and growth rate compared to heat stress, though the reverse may be true under long-term stress (Roth et al.
