Yasmin Gabay, Yehuda Benayahu and Maoz Fine Does elevated pCO2 affect reef octocorals? Ecology and Evolution 3
Several biological features of selected octocorals were examined under high pCO2 conditions.

It is therefore suggested that the octocorals' tissue may act as a protective barrier against adverse pH conditions, thus maintaining them unharmed at high levels of pCO2.
