The maculated top shell Trochus maculatus inhabits the lower to sublittoral zones in Indoand South Pacific reefs, feeding on green and red algae and benthic diatoms. As T. maculatus is economically important, e.g., its meat for food and its shell potentially in button making, Thailand has developed culture methods for this species (Chunhabundit et al.(More)
On 23 August 2010, about 1,300 h, 20 giant clams Tridacna gigas of three different cohorts were induced to spawn by serotonin injection at the UPMSI (University of the Philippines-Marine Science Institute) clam ocean nursery near Silaqui Island, Bolinao (Pangasinan, Philippines). The spawning site is situated within the reef flat and is about 2 m deep, with(More)
Knowledge on coral reproduction has implications for the restoration and recovery of degraded coral communities. Few studies on coral spawning timing and extent of synchrony have been recorded in the most biodiverse and disturbed coral reef ecosystems of the Coral Triangle. In the present study, the reproductive timing in 2015 and 2016 is reported of an(More)
Ocean acidification (OA) is known to directly impact larval physiology and development of many marine organisms. OA also affects the nutritional quality and palatability of algae, which are principal food sources for many types of planktonic larvae. This potential indirect effect of OA via trophic interactions, however, has not been fully explored. In this(More)
Storm events are common in tropical regions and predicted to increase in frequency and intensity attributed to climate change. The iconic giant clams thriving in shallow coral reef areas in the Indo-Pacific region could experience salinity fluctuations during these events characterized by extreme precipitation. Given the limited ecotoxicological studies on(More)
