Supplementary Material

Supplemental Table. Occurrence of 75 IUCN Red Listed Coral Species in the U.S. Pacific and in federally protected areas, and data sources used to substantiate the occurrence records. "1" indicates presence; empty cell indicates no record of occurrence. FDP = Farallon de Pajaros; FFS = French Frigate Shoals; P'H = Pearl and Hermes. National Park and Marine Sanctuary name codes are given in Table 1. 1. VU=vulnerable, EN=endangered, CR=critically endangered. 2. A=supported by existing datasets, B=geographic misattribution, not supported, C=taxonomic misidentification or uncertainly, not supported. 3. Units here represents discrete islands or atolls, except for the HIHWNMS where reported occurrence data were not recorded to individual islands ; units are not strictly additive as Tutuila hosts both a National Park and a Marine Sanctuary, and the island of Hawaii hosts 3 National Parks. 4. Regions covered by unpublished data sources: D. Fenner (American Samoa), J. Maragos (Pacific Remote islands), J. Kenyon (Wake), D. Burdick (Guam), C. Birkeland (American Samoa), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center Coral Reef Ecosystem Division (NOAA PIFSC CRED) database (Marianas), National Park Service Pacific Islands Monitoring Network (NPS PIMN) database (Hawaii National Parks).
