Abstract Aqueous extracts of Goniopora tenuidens inhibited larval metamorphosis and post-metamorphic growth of the hard coral Picillopora damicornis. The extracts killed swimming larvae of four scleractinian corals and modified the behaviour of larvae of P. damicornis at concentrations as low as 3.9 μg ml. This toxicity may indicate the presnce of allelochemicals that limit the settlement of potential competitors.
