Abstract: Planulae larvae of the reef coral Pocillopora damicornis were
exposed to three pesticides in concentrations ranging from 0.01 to 100 ppm.
Actively swimming planulae were held in test solutions for 96 hr, after which
viability was determined. Carbaryl and l-naphthol in concentrations up to 10
ppm had no effect on the planulae after 96 hr. Chlorpyrifos at levels of 1 ppm
and higher resulted in mortality in 50 to 100% of the trials.
