Combined responses of primary coral polyps and their algal endosymbionts to decreasing seawater pH

Federica Scucchia, Assaf Malik, Paul Zaslansky, Hollie Putnam & Tali Mass
With coral reefs declining globally, resilience of these ecosystems hinges on successful coral recruitment. However, knowledge of the acclimatory and/or adaptive potential in response to environmental challenges such as ocean acidification (OA) in earliest life stages is limited. Our combination of physiological measurements, microscopy, computed tomography techniques and gene expression analysis allowed us to thoroughly elucidate the mechanisms underlying the response of early life stages of corals, together with their algal partners, to the projected...
