Flow-dependent herbivory and growth in zooxanthellae-free soft corals
The diet of Dendronephthya hemprichi and three other abundant soft corals in the northern Red Sea consists mainly of phytoplankton, a food source so far unknown for cnidarians. We present a carbonExpand

Three party symbiosis: acoelomorph worms, corals and unicellular algal symbionts in Eilat (Red Sea)
Epizoic worms were found to occur on certain coral colonies from reefs off the coast of Eilat (Red Sea). We identified 14 coral species infested by acoelomorph worms at a depth range of 2–50 m. TheExpand
