The Magnitude of Global Marine Species Diversity
TLDR
The first register of the marine species of the world is compiled and it is estimated that between one-third and two-thirds of marine species may be undescribed, and previous estimates of there being well over one million marine species appear highly unlikely.
The phylum Cnidaria: A review of phylogenetic patterns and diversity 300 years after Linnaeus
TLDR
This work contrasts the Linnaean perspective on cnidarian diversity with the modern, phylogenetic perspective, and details diversity at the family level, providing phylogenetic context where possible.
CORAL BLEACHING AS AN ADAPTIVE MECHANISM : A TESTABLE HYPOTHESIS
TLDR
This article considers only the phenomenon of algal loss, the loss of pigment associated with their symbiotic algae (zooxanthellae) in organisms such as hard and soft corals, giant clams, and sea anemones.
Managing for ocean biodiversity to sustain marine ecosystem services
Managing a complex ecosystem to balance delivery of all of its services is at the heart of ecosystem-based management. But how can this balance be accomplished amidst the conflicting demands of
Finding NEMO: nestedness engendered by mutualistic organization in anemonefish and their hosts
TLDR
Understanding of the structure of mutualistic relationships is extended into previously unexplored taxonomic and physical realms, and how nestedness analysis can be applied to the conservation of obligate species interactions is suggested.
Host recognition and possible imprinting in the anemonefish Amphiprion melanopus (Pisces: Pomacentridae)
TLDR
It is suggested that juvenile A. melanopus possess an innate preference for E. quadricolor, a preference that is enhanced by imprinting, and that anemonefish host-imprinting may be rather restricted.
