High CO2 reduces the settlement of a spawning coral on three common species of crustose coralline algae
Posted on EPOCA: 26 Feb 2013 Concern about the impacts of ocean acidification (OA) on ecosystem function has prompted many studies to focus on larval recruitment, demonstrating declines in settlement and early growth at elevated CO2 concentrations. Since larval settlement is often driven by particular cues governed by crustose coralline algae
