Decreased abundance of crustose coralline algae due to ocean acidification
Increasing levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide leads to ocean acidification, causing significant reductions in the growth of crustose coralline algae. Owing to anthropogenic emissions, atmosphericExpand

Ocean acidification and calcifying reef organisms: a mesocosm investigation
A long-term (10 months) controlled experiment was conducted to test the impact of increased partial pressure of carbon dioxide (pCO2) on common calcifying coral reef organisms. The experiment wasExpand

Net Loss of CaCO 3 from a subtropical calcifying community due to seawater acidification: mesocosm-scale experimental evidence
Abstract. Acidification of seawater owing to oceanic uptake of atmospheric CO2 originating from human activities such as burning of fossil fuels and land-use changes has raised serious concernsExpand

Relationships Between Reef Fish Communities and Remotely Sensed Rugosity Measurements in Biscayne National Park, Florida, USA
The realization that coral reef ecosystem management must occur across multiple spatial scales and habitat types has led scientists and resource managers to seek variables that are easily measuredExpand

A Century of Ocean Warming on Florida Keys Coral Reefs: Historic In Situ Observations
There is strong evidence that global climate change over the last several decades has caused shifts in species distributions, species extinctions, and alterations in the functioning of ecosystems.Expand

Calcification rates of the massive coral Siderastrea siderea and crustose coralline algae along the Florida Keys (USA) outer-reef tract
Coral reefs are degrading on a global scale, and rates of reef-organism calcification are predicted to decline due to ocean warming and acidification. Systematic measurements of calcification overExpand

Effects of nitrate, phosphate and iron on the growth of macroalgae and benthic cyanobacteria from Cocos Lagoon, Guam
The observed high abundance of algae and cyanobacteria on Guam's coral reefs raises concern regarding a possible shift from coral- to algal-dominated communities. Possible increased nutrient supplyExpand

Effects of ultraviolet (UV) radiation on larval settlement of the reef coral Pocillopora damicornis
Sedimentation, predation and visible light are cited as causal factors to explain the pref- erential recruitment of coral larvae to shaded habitats in shallow water. Here I examine the effects ofExpand

Northern Florida reef tract benthic metabolism scaled by remote sensing
Holistic rates of excess organic carbon production (E) and calcification for a 0.5 km 2 segment of the backreef platform of the northern Florida reef tract (NFRT) were estimated by com- biningExpand
