ArticleIntraspecific variability in the response to ocean warming and acidification in a scleractinian coralShaw, EmilyStudies of coral colonies show that ocean acidification and temperature can affect calcification; however, less is known about the consequences for their populations. Understanding intraspecific variation in the response of corals to these conditions . . .
ArticleDifferences in the responses of three scleractinians and the hydrocoral Millepora platyphylla to ocean acidificationBrown, Darren JamesWe tested the hypothesis that taxonomically diverse cnidarians display dissimilar responses to ocean acidification (OA), and did so by comparing the individual responses to OA of one hydrocoral and three scleractinians. The hydrocoral Millepora platyp . . .
ArticleEffect of pCO2 on the growth, respiration, and photophysiology of massive Porites spp. in Moorea, French PolynesiaEdmunds, Peter J.I tested the hypothesis that high pCO2 (76.6 Pa and 87.2 Pa vs. 42.9 Pa) has no effect on the metabolism of juvenile massive Porites spp. after 11 days at 28 C and 545 lmol quanta m-2 s -1 . The response was assessed as aerobic dark respiration, skele . . .
ArticleEdmunds, Peter J.With coral reefs impacted by climate change, attention is turning to the extent to which scleractinian corals can acclimatize to new physical conditions. The implicit assumption that acclimatization is beneficial has not been tested for scleractinians . . .
