The Marine Microbial Eukaryote Transcriptome Sequencing Project (MMETSP): Illuminating the Functional Diversity of Eukaryotic Life in the Oceans through Transcriptome Sequencing
This Community Page describes a resource of 700 transcriptomes from marine microbial eukaryotes to help understand their role in the world's oceans. Expand
Cell Biology of Cnidarian-Dinoflagellate Symbiosis
A comprehensive overview of the history of the cnidarian/coral-dinoflagellate symbiosis, its current status, and where it should be going in the future is provided. Expand

It is argued here that progress in understanding coral biology requires intensive study of the cellular processes underlying this symbiosis, and that a model-systems approach is essential for making effective progress inUnderstanding coral cell biology. Expand
An enemy within? Observations of virus-like particles in reef corals.
The role of viruses in marine ecosystems is thought to be just as diverse and goes beyond the simple infect-replicate-kill cycle with far reaching implications for biogeochemical cycling, biogas production, structuring planktonic communities and mediating horizontal gene transfer. Expand
Temperate and tropical algal-sea anemone symbioses
Comparison of the nature of symbiosis between sea anemones and zooxanthellae in both regions to test tropical paradigms against temperate examples and to identify directions for future research indicates the need for more investigations of other temperate and tropical symbiotic anemone species. Expand
The influence of "host release factor" on carbon release by zooxanthellae isolated from fed and starved Aiptasia pallida (Verrill).
The results support the suggestion that HRF diverts surplus carbon away from storage compounds to translocated compounds such as glycerol, and also observed when zooxanthellae from A. pallida were incubated in a 3-kDa ultrafiltrate of the coral Montastraea annularis, suggesting thatHRF in the different filtrates operated in a similar manner.

Predictive Modeling of Coral Disease Distribution within a Reef System
Coral diseases are recommended to be modeled separately, unless known to have etiologies that respond in a similar manner to particular environmental conditions, to help to increase the understanding of coral disease ecology worldwide. Expand
Carbon budgets in temperate anthozoan-dinoflagellate symbioses
When field conditions are considered on an annual basis, the general need for heterotrophically-derived carbon in temperate Anthozoa is suggested. Expand
Could some coral reefs become sponge reefs as our climate changes?

It is proposed that sponges may be one group to benefit from projected climate change and ocean acidification scenarios, and that increased sponge abundance represents a possible future trajectory for some coral reefs, which would have important implications for overall reef functioning. Expand
Growth Anomalies on the Coral Genera Acropora and Porites Are Strongly Associated with Host Density and Human Population Size across the Indo-Pacific
This is one of the first broad-scale studies unambiguously linking a coral disease with human population size and emphasizes that individual coral diseases can show relatively distinct patterns of association with environmental predictors, even in similar diseases (growth anomalies) found on different host genera.
