Effects of nutrient enrichment and grazers on coral reefs: an experimental assessment

BT Furman, Jr Heck KL
2008 Marine Ecology Progress Series  
Many studies have suggested that the loss of herbivore populations and coastal eutrophication are driving this increase in algal biomass, although competing processes have rarely been assessed concurrently  ...  We attribute this effect to an unanticipated interaction with fish grazing intensity and suggest that the impacts of fish grazing masked those of D. antillarum and drove algal succession towards a benthos  ...  Kroutil, and D.
