Caribbean Coral Reefs Under Siege from Aggressive Algae, Finds Study

For the past four years, the University of Oxford's Bryan Wilson, Carnegie's Chen-Ming Fan, and California State University Northridge's Peter Edmunds have been studying the biology and ecology of peyssonnelid algal crusts, or PAC, in the U.S. Virgin Islands, which are out-competing coral larvae for limited surface space and then growing over the existing reef architecture, greatly damaging these fragile ecosystems. -- ECO Magazine

New algae threatens conservation of Caribbean coral reefs
