I am a PhD student study coral reef ecology at the Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia. I am interested in bottom up verses top down effects on the growth of algae and how this may affect coral health. I am going to be looking at the role of nutrients on algal growth and would like to set my nutrient concentrations at a similar level to other coral reefs which are considered to be nutrient enriched. Can anyone advise what levels of inorganic nitrogen and phosphorous in the water column are considered enriched? I am after references and/or unpublished data.
