The unique mutualism between corals and their photosynthetic zooxanthellae (Symbiodinium spp.) is the driving force behind functional assemblages of coral reefs. However, the respective roles of hosts and Symbiodinium in this endosymbiotic association, particularly in response to environmental challenges (e.g., high sea surface temperatures), remain(More)
Two pennate diatoms, Amphora coffeaeformis and Nitzschia ovalis, were used to evaluate potential responses to the future CO2 and temperature increases with respect to cell-specific growth rate, elemental composition, size, population growth rate, and carrying capacity. Diatoms were subjected to four different treatments over a 2 week period (approximately 4(More)
Survival of the giant kelp, Macrocystis pyrifera (Linnaeus) C. Agardh, in its natural habitat is governed by abiotic and biotic factors such as temperature, light, nutrients, current velocity, and predators. Factors affecting the survival of the alga in an aquarium setting, however, have not been investigated. The National Museum of Marine Biology and(More)
