Description

We hypothesized that ocean acidification would cause bleaching as defined by decreased photochemical efficiency, reduced photosynthetic capacity and efficiency, depressed chlorophyll a content, and lowered Symbiodinium densities and that these effects would be exacerbated with high temperature.
