Flexibility and Specificity in Coral-Algal Symbiosis: Diversity, Ecology, and Biogeography of Symbiodinium
▪ Abstract Reef corals (and other marine invertebrates and protists) are hosts to a group of exceptionally diverse dinoflagellate symbionts in the genus Symbiodinium. These symbionts are criticalExpand

Climate change and coral reef bleaching: An ecological assessment of long-term impacts, recovery trends and future outlook
Abstract Since the early 1980s, episodes of coral reef bleaching and mortality, due primarily to climate-induced ocean warming, have occurred almost annually in one or more of the world's tropical orExpand

Coral reefs: Corals' adaptive response to climate change
The long-term response of coral reefs to climate change depends on the ability of reef-building coral symbioses to adapt or acclimatize to warmer temperatures, but there has been no direct evidenceExpand

The bleaching of coral reefs, in which symbiotic algae are lost from reef-building invertebrates, is usually considered to be a drastic and damaging response to adverse environmental conditions. HereExpand

Coral bleaching and mortality in Panama and Ecuador during the 1997-1998 El Niño-Southern Oscillation event : Spatial/temporal patterns and comparisons with the 1982-1983 event
Bleaching and mortality of zooxanthellate corals during the 1997-98 El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) event are documented for eastern equatorial Pacific localities in Panama (Gulf of Chiriqui andExpand

Specificity is rarely absolute in coral–algal symbiosis: implications for coral response to climate change
Some reef-building corals have been shown to respond to environmental change by shifting the composition of their algal symbiont (genus Symbiodinium) communities. These shifts have been proposed as aExpand
