Competition between macroalgae and corals: effects of herbivore exclusion and increased algal biomass on coral survivorship and growth

Abstract

Recent declines in coral abundance accompanied by increases in macroalgal cover on Florida reefs highlight the importance of competition for space between these groups. This paper documents the frequency of coral–algal interactions on the Northern Florida Reef Tract and evaluates the effects of grazer exclusions and experimental algal addition on growth and… (More)
