Science - Biology (-tech,-chem,micro-) / marine biology
English term or phrase: less than c. 10%
If intact donor colonies are used as a source of fragments for either direct transplantation or a period of culture followed by transplantation, then the limited research suggests that only a small part of the colony ///(less than c.10%)/// should be excised in order to minimise stress to the donor colony.

Document dealing with reef restauration, this particular part deals with fragment used as transplants.

It is the "c." that puzzles me.
Thanks for your help.

agree  Catherine GUILLIAUMET: Vraie fana de "circa", toutefois j'ai plus qu'un léger doute, et je pense que cet auteur peu flamboyant peut vouloir nous dire "moins de 10 % de la colonie", ce qui relève de la +pure logique microbiologique.

agree  Vepalm: I will use "moins de ca. 10%". The abbrevature ca = c. is accepted in many languages as a Latin abbreviation of "Circa" .
