Delayed metamorphosis can affect post-metamorphic performance in a variety of marine invertebrate species, possibly through effects on larval energy reserves. Nevertheless, the consequences of the 'latent effects' of natural environmental conditions and the proximate causes of the effects have rarely been examined. We documented the combined effect of delayed metamorphosis and sub-lethal exposure ... read more
