Abstract: Effects on mortality and settlement of Pocillopora damicornis planula larvae during recovery from low levels of Ni++ were investigated. Results indicated that a nickel concentration of 9 ppm over 12 hr was sufficient to cause 50% mortality in larvae 39.6 hr after removal of the toxicant. Settlement in larvae was more sensitive, showing significantly reduced settlement rates from 9 days into recovery, after exposure to I ppm Ni++ at durations of 12-96 hr. It is recommended that coral planula larvae be utilized more extensively in pollution studies.
