Shifting symbiotic states and diversity patterns as an indicator of climate change

Poster Number:  364 Presenter/Primary Author:  Ruth Gates Accumulating data strongly suggest that the fate of Scleractinians will be determined in part, by the composition of symbiotic dinoflagellate (Symbiodinium sp.) communities hosted by coral

Establishment and persistence of macroalgal phase shifts

Poster Number:  361 Presenter/Primary Author:  Samantha Davis Coral reefs are among the most diverse and productive marine ecosystems, and are currently threatened by an increasing frequency and magnitude of natural and anthropogenic perturbations.

Nitrogen addition modulates the response of Hydrolithon onkodes to ocean acidification

Poster Number:  339 Presenter/Primary Author:  Robert Carpenter A growing body of evidence suggests that continued acidification of surface waters of the ocean will have significant negative impacts on calcifying organisms and this will be particularly importan

Effect of Sargassum pacificum on the calcification of juvenile Porites rus in elevated CO2 conditions

Poster Number:  309 Presenter/Primary Author:  Heather Hillard Ocean acidification (OA), the decrease in the pH and carbonate ion concentration due to the uptake of anthropogenic CO2, poses a severe threat to coral reefs worldwide as studies predict

Effects of ocean acidification on bioerosion of burrowing bivalves in Moorea, French Polynesia.

Poster Number:  303 Presenter/Primary Author:  Lauren Valentino Anthropogenic pCO2 causing ocean acidification (OA) is predicted to decrease ocean surface pH by 0.14–0.35 units by 2100.
