English term or phrase:In between in scale
Restoration has been carried out with some success on scales of tens of square metres to several hectares. However, a wide range of local human impacts on reefs act at scales of several square kilometres and cumulative human impact over decades has led to estimates of 100 -1000s of square kilometres of degraded reef in countries such as Jamaica and the Philippines. At a similar scale was the area of reefs in the Indian Ocean affected by mass post-bleaching coral mortality during the
1998 El Niño Southern Oscillation event. ///In between in scale,/// are events such as major Crown-of-thorns
(Acanthaster planci) outbreaks on the Great Barrier Reef, which in a bad year might severely impact 100s of square kilometres of reef.
