Assembly rules of reef corals are flexible along a steep climatic gradient

Coral reefs, one of the world’s most complex and vulnerable ecosystems, face an uncertain future in coming decades as they continue to respond to anthropogenic climate change, overfishing, pollution, and other human impacts [[1] and [2]]. Traditionally, marine macroecology is based on presence/absence data from taxonomic checklists or geographic ranges, providing a qualitative overview of [.
