Concerns regarding the response of calcifiers in future warmer and more acidic oceans have been raised in many studies. Tropical large benthic foraminifera (LBF) are important carbonate producers that reside in coral reefs worldwide. Similar to corals, these organisms live in symbioses with microalgae, which promote high calcification rates. The(More)
The resilience of coral reefs relies significantly on the ability of corals to recover successfully in algal-dominated environments. Larval settlement is a critical but highly vulnerable stage in the early life history of corals. In this study, we analyzed how the presence of two upright fleshy algae, Sargassum mcclurei (SM) and Padina australis (PA), and(More)
Large benthic foraminifera (LBFs) are a vital component of coral reef carbonate production, often overlooked due to their small size. These super-abundant calcifiers are crucial to reef calcification by generation of lagoon and beach sands. Reef-scale carbonate production by LBFs is not well understood, and seasonal fluctuations in this important process(More)
