Calcification by Reef-Building Sclerobionts

Mallela, Jennie-Ann

Description

It is widely accepted that deteriorating water quality associated with increased sediment stress has reduced calcification rates on coral reefs. However, there is limited information regarding the growth and development of reef building organisms, aside from the corals themselves. This study investigated encruster calcification on five fore-reefs in Tobago subjected to a range of sedimentation rates (1.2 to 15.9 mg cm-2 d-1). Experimental substrates were used to assess rates of calcification in...[Show more]
