Resumo:  During the period from January to August 1998, the largest coral bleaching event and subsequent mortality ever recorded had a huge ecological impact on coral reefs throughout the Indian Ocean. This event corresponded to increased seawater temperatures due to an ENSO phenomenon (Wilkinson, 1998). The full extent of the socio-economic impacts will depend on the recovery capacity of corals which, in many locations, are seriously threatened by human activities. This study documents the ecological status and recovery of corals reefs from theComoros archipelago (Comoros, Mayotte, Geyser), Madagascar and Réunion which were affected by the bleaching from January to August 1998. The impact of the bleaching at each location varies in its extent in time and severity.
