Figure 2

Results for nubbins at day 28 maintained fed under (a) control temperature at 25 °C (CTF) or (b) after the start of the heat stress at 31 °C (HTF), and unfed under (c) control temperature at 25 °C (CTU) or (d) after the start of the heat stress at 31 °C (HTU); at day 56 maintained fed under (e) control temperature at 25 °C (CTF) or (f) after the end of the heat stress at 31 °C (HTF), and unfed under (g) control temperature at 25 °C (CTU) or (h) after the end of the heat stress at 31 °C (HTU). Symbols are defined in the text. Data represent means and standard errors of means of n = 4 measurements. The significance of ρDOCand ρPOC was tested using a t-test on differences in the amount of carbon lost (CL = RC + ρDOC + ρPOC) and total holobiont respiration (RC). For fed corals, the zooplankton value was comes from Ferrier-Pagès et al.34 and Tremblay et al.71. Symbols are defined in the text, and a list of symbols and definitions is given in Table 5.
