The experiment on Ellisolandia reef terminates this week. The reef and its fauna were exposed to multiple stressors (pH and temperature) expected for 2100 for three months. Effects on reef-forming algae and its associated fauna will be investigated in the next months, in collaboration with the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences of the University of Pavia.

Preliminary results will be presented at the next MARES Conference in Olhao, Portugal (1-5 February 2016)!
