The influence of symbiont type on photosynthetic carbon flux in a model cnidarian–dinoflagellate symbiosis
We measured the relationship between symbiont diversity, nutritional potential, and symbiotic success in the cnidarian–dinoflagellate symbiosis, by infecting aposymbiotic (i.e. symbiont-free)Expand

Reef-building corals thrive within hot-acidified and deoxygenated waters
Coral reefs are deteriorating under climate change as oceans continue to warm and acidify and thermal anomalies grow in frequency and intensity. In vitro experiments are widely used to forecastExpand

A multi-trait systems approach reveals a response cascade to bleaching in corals
BackgroundClimate change causes the breakdown of the symbiotic relationships between reef-building corals and their photosynthetic symbionts (genus Symbiodinium), with thermal anomalies in 2015–2016Expand

Horizontal transmission of Symbiodinium cells between adult and juvenile corals is aided by benthic sediment
Of all reef-building coral species, 80–85 % initially draw their intracellular symbionts (dinoflagellates of the genus Symbiodinium) from the environment. Although Symbiodinium cells are crucial forExpand

Cell Cycle Dynamics of Cultured Coral Endosymbiotic Microalgae (Symbiodinium) Across Different Types (Species) Under Alternate Light and Temperature Conditions
Dinoflagellates of the genus Symbiodinium live in symbiosis with many invertebrates, including reef‐building corals. Hosts maintain this symbiosis through continuous regulation of Symbiodinium cellExpand

The effect of elevated temperature and substrate on free-living Symbiodinium cultures
Abstract Elevated temperatures can produce a range of serious, deleterious effects on marine invertebrate—Symbiodinium symbioses. The responses of free-living Symbiodinium to elevated temperature,Expand

Expanding the Symbiodinium (Dinophyceae, Suessiales) Toolkit Through Protoplast Technology
Dinoflagellates within the genus Symbiodinium are photosymbionts of many tropical reef invertebrates, including corals, making them central to the health of coral reefs. Symbiodinium have thereforeExpand

Symbiodinium mitigate the combined effects of hypoxia and acidification on a noncalcifying cnidarian
Abstract Anthropogenic nutrient inputs enhance microbial respiration within many coastal ecosystems, driving concurrent hypoxia and acidification. During photosynthesis, Symbiodinium spp., theExpand

Species-specific differences in thermal tolerance may define susceptibility to intracellular acidosis in reef corals
It is widely acknowledged that temperature stress affects an organism’s sensitivity to ocean acidification and vice versa, yet it is not clear how the two are mechanistically linked. Here, we inducedExpand

Mass coral bleaching of P. versipora in Sydney Harbour driven by the 2015–2016 heatwave
High-latitude coral communities are distinct from their tropical counterparts, and how they respond to recent heat wave events that have decimated tropical reefs remains unknown. In Australia, theExpand
