Does anyone know how gross primary production may be affected by
decreasing/ shrinking zooxanthellar size in corals, clams or culture
(assuming constant chlorophyll content and number of algae cells)? Will
denser concentrations of pigments in zooxanthellae shade each other
and decrease production efficiency, or what?
I have been unable to find any references on this. I have only seen
references where dense populations of zooxanthellae may shade each
other and cause diminishing efficiency...
