Benthos communities simulating various aspects of coral reefs were established in 600-liter microcosm tanks. These communities were then subjected to various environmental perturbations, including altered light regime, altered substratum type, salinity depression, elevated nutrient level, and biological manipulation. The metabolic responses of the community to these perturbations were monitored, primarily by analysis of dissolved oxygen flux. Light, substratum type, and nutrient levels are resources which limit community metabolism. From 35 to 22 parts per 1000 by weight, metabolism is not sensitive to salinity. Metabolism is sensitive to biological manipulation.
