Bathymetric distributions of photosynthetic marine invertebrate species are relatively well studied, however the importance of symbiont zonation (i.e. hosting of distinct algal endosymbiont communities over depth) in determining these depth distributions still remains unclear. Here, we assess the prevalence of symbiont zonation in tropical scleractinian(More)
Measurements of body composition are being made increasingly widely in pediatrics. Tetrapolar whole body impedance (BI) is particularly suitable as a method of estimating body composition in children and is therefore the subject of great interest at present. However, the ability of BI to accurately estimate fat-free mass (FFM) in children is unclear, and(More)
Marine plankton support global biological and geochemical processes. Surveys of their biodiversity have hitherto been geographically restricted and have not accounted for the full range of plankton size. We assessed eukaryotic diversity from 334 size-fractionated photic-zone plankton communities collected across tropical and temperate oceans during the(More)
Emiliania huxleyi and Gephyrocapsa oceanica are abundant coccolithophore morpho-species that play key roles in ocean carbon cycling due to their importance as both primary producers and cal-cifiers. Global change processes such as ocean acidification impact these key calcifying species. The physiology of E. huxleyi, a developing model species, has been(More)
Systemic gamma-aminobutyric acid produces a rapid, sustained, but transiently reversible blockade of evoked axodendritic excitatory postsynaptic potentials in neonatal cortex when the "barrier" operating to restrict its passage has been altered by various experimental procedures. The data obtained under these conditions indicate the existence of(More)
Symbiotic partnerships between heterotrophic hosts and intracellular microalgae are common in tropical and subtropical oligotrophic waters of benthic and pelagic marine habitats. The iconic example is the photosynthetic dinoflagellate genus Symbiodinium that establishes mutualistic symbioses with a wide diversity of benthic hosts, sustaining highly(More)
The genus Symbiodinium comprises a diverse group of dinoflagellates known for their obligate relationship with reef–building corals. Members of the sub-genus ‘clade C’ are abundant, geographically wide-spread, as well as genetically and ecologically diverse. Coral colonies harboring clade C are often the most exposed to physical stressors. The genotypic(More)
