Chapter 3 1 The Role of Seaweed Chemical Defenses in the Evolution of Feeding Specialization and in the Mediation of Complex Interactions

Abstract

Herbivory on seaweeds is intense and is often the primary factor affecting their distribution and abundance This is especially true on tropical coral reefs, where either sea urchins or fishes alone can consume nearly 100% of local production (Carpenter 1986). In reef systems as well as in temperate habitats such as kelp beds, grazers appear to have been a… (More)
