This data set tested the effect of 3 pCO2 levels on the metabolism of juvenile massive Porites spp. Conducted in Moorea, French Polynesia in April-May 2011.  Aerobic dark respiration, skeletal weight (i.e., calcification), biomass, and chlorophyll fluorescence were measured as well as the experimental seawater carabonate parameters.

These data were published in Edmunds PJ. (2012) Effect of pCO2 on the growth, respiration, and photophysiology of massive Porites spp. in Moorea, French Polynesia. Marine Biology 159: 2149-2160.
