Coral–algal symbioses are essential for the survival of corals. Algal endosymbionts, specifically the dinoflagellate genus Symbiodinium, are divided into several genetic clades. The composition of Symbiodinium within corals plays an important role in the tolerance and/or sensitivity of host corals to local environments, due to individual Symbiodinium-specific physiological characteristics. While the majority of gamete-spawning corals acquire Symbiodinium from the surrounding environment, little… CONTINUE READING
