Fish foraging behavior changes plankton-nutrient relations in laboratory microcosms

Fish foraging behavior changesplankton-nutrient relations in laboratory microcosms NOVALES-FLAMARIQUE, I., S. GRIESBACH, M. PARENT, A. CATTANEO, AND R. H. PETERS, Limnol. Oceanogr., 38(2), 1993, 290-298 Full article (PDF): http://aslo.net/lo/toc/vol_38/issue_2/0290.pdf To demonstrate that the effects of higher trophic elements on plankton in laboratory aquaria are not simple top-down or bottom-up processes, we measured phosphorus and chlorophyll concentrations […]

The response of the scleractinian coral Turbinaria reniformis to thermal stress depends on the nitrogen status of the coral holobiont

The response of the scleractinian coral Turbinaria reniformis to thermal stress depends on the nitrogen status of the coral holobiont Eric Béraud, François Gevaert, Cécile Rottier, Christine Ferrier-Pagès Journal of Experimental Biology  2013  216: 2665-2674;  doi: 10.1242/jeb.085183  (Bolding is mine, for emphasis.) In non-stressed healthy corals, it has been shown that nutrient addition (nitrogen alone or in combination with phosphorus) may negatively impact […]
