Intraspecific variations in responses to ocean acidification in two branching coral species
Description: In this journal paper the responses of two branching corals in the acidified seawater were evaluated. It was found intra- and interspecific variations in calcification and photosynthetic efficiency were evident in acidified seawater. The authors concluded some corals may cope with future ocean acidification by adaptation and/or phenotypic plasticity. [Source: Marine Pollution Bulletin]
