  • Alveopora japonica Eguchi, 1968 (Scleractinia, Acroporidae) occurs in shallow benthic communities from Southern Taiwan to high latitude areas of Japan where it is usually rare and nested among algae and soft corals (Dai and Horng 2009). It is also a peculiar species among the scleractinians due to its association with Symbiodinium clades C, E, and F (RodriguezLanetty et al. 2003; Jeong et al. 2012). In October 2012, we found extensive A. japonica beds (Fig. 1a, b) at Biyangdo, located to the… CONTINUE READING
