Sources: Major commercial shipping activity was determined as the normalized stressor magnitude values for 2003-2011 (Halpern, Frazier et al.,
2015; Halpern, Frazier et al., 2015); population pressure was defined as the summed presence of three stressors: urban areas in 2001-2002 (Schneider,
Friedl et al., 2003; Schneider, Friedl et al., 2009; Schneider, Friedl et al, 2010), high population density areas (>399 people/km2) in 2000 (Bright and
Coleman, 2001; Bright and Rose, 2014), and oil rigs for 2004-2006 (Halpern, Frazier et al., 2015; Halpern, Frazier et al., 2015), where 3 = all stressors, 2
= two of any stressors, and 1 = any one stressor); mangrove biomass for mangroves classified <40 m high in 1999-2000 (Fatoyinbo and Simard, 2013);
30 mile coastal buffer created in ESRI ArcMap 10.3 from the coast (GADM 2015); 200 nm land buffer (VLIZ 2014).
