  author={Mayumi Eliza Otsuka Sato},
  journal={Coral Reefs},
Early mortality in cohortsof the coral Pocillopora damicornis (Linnaeus) was monitored under experimental conditions on a reef in order to evaluate effects of sedimentation, grazing, predation and competition. Corals that settled in dishes in the laboratory were placed on the reef flat about 3 days after metamorphosis. Six different conditions were tested in each series of experiments: orientation of dishes (upward, vertical and downward) by with and without protection against potential grazers… CONTINUE READING
