Accounting for environmental stress in restoration of intertidal foundation species

Rachel Clausing, Gina De La Fuente, Annalisa Falace & Mariachiara Chiantore
1. Restoration of foundation species in historical habitat may be difficult if adult facilitation is obligatory for survival of early life stages. 2. On intertidal Mediterranean coasts, large-scale loss of the dominant forest-forming macroalga Ericaria amentacea, have prompted restoration efforts using recruits. Yet, early life stages may be more susceptible to the abiotic stress that characterizes their habitat. 3. We tested strategies to enhance resilience of lab-cultured juveniles of E. amentacea to environmental stress in...
