  • Caffeine isthe mostwidely consumed and excreted psychoactive drug in the world. It is a ubiquitous tracer of urban wastewater, but its ecological effects are notwell understood. We hypothesized that caffeine exposure is associated with coral bleaching. Here we report the effects of caffeine on four species of coral algae endosymbionts belonging to three widely distributed clades: Clade A Symbiodinium microadriaticum (A), Clade B Symbiodinium sp. from Aiptasia pallida (B6), Clade B Symbiodinium… CONTINUE READING
