Estimation of divergence times in cnidarian evolution based on mitochondrial protein-coding genes and the fossil record.
The phylum Cnidaria is comprised of remarkably diverse and ecologically significant taxa, such as the reef-forming corals, and occupies a basal position in metazoan evolution. The origin of thisExpand

Specificity of two temperate dinoflagellate–anthozoan associations from the north-western Pacific Ocean
Whilst many studies of symbiotic dinoflagellate diversity have focused on tropical reef environments, only a few have explored the degree and pattern of divergence of these endosymbionts at highExpand

Recruitment of the subtropical coral Alveopora japonica in the temperate waters of Jeju Island, South Korea
The zooxanthellate scleractinian coral, Alveopora japonica Eguchi, 1968, inhabits high-latitude waters from southern Taiwan to mainland Japan. This species may have benefited from recent increase inExpand

The complete mitochondrial genome of Calicogorgia granulosa (Anthozoa: Octocorallia): potential gene novelty in unidentified ORFs formed by repeat expansion and segmental duplication.
Mitochondrial genomes of many nonbilaterian animals show high diversity of genome size and gene content, revealing many intergenic regions (IGRs), diverse repeats and additional genes. Here weExpand

Emergent effects of heavy metal pollution at a population level: Littorina brevicula a study case.
Changes in genetic variability and allele frequency can be responses from natural populations when encountering a novel contaminated environment. The genetic diversity and population structuring ofExpand

Systematic relationship of the anthozoan orders based on the partial nuclear 18S rDNA sequences
Systematic relationship of 13 species representing seven orders of anthozoans, and one hydrozoan as an outgroup, were investigated. Distance and parsimony methods were used to analyze nucleotideExpand

Reproductive biology and larval development of the temperate soft coral Dendronephthya gigantea (Alcyonacea: Nephtheidae)
Dendronephthya gigantea (Verrill, 1864), the dominant species in the waters surrounding Jeju Island, Korea, is a gonochoric internal brooder that releases its planulae from July to September. TheExpand

Two anthozoans, Entacmaea quadricolor (order Actiniaria) and Alveopora japonica (order Scleractinia), host consistent genotypes of Symbiodinium spp. across geographic ranges in the northwestern
Abstract The actiniarian sea anemone, Entacmaea quadricolor, and the scleractinian coral, Alveopora japonica, host symbiotic dinoflagellates belonging to the genus Symbiodinium (Freudenthal). WeExpand

A New Species of Genus Coeloplana (Ctenophora: Tentaculata: Platyctenida) from Korea
Since November, 2006, the new creeping platyctenid ctenophore, Coeloplana anthostella n. sp., has been collected from twigs and polyp masses of encrusting dendronephthyans at a depth of 26-32 m offExpand

Genetic population structure of Littorina brevicula around Korean waters
Because Korean waters are influenced by different minor current systems, this may lead us to expect certain genetic differentiation among populations of marine invertebrates around Korean coastlines.Expand
