New Records of Azooxanthellate Scleractinian Corals (Cnidaria: Anthozoa) from Sagami Bay and Suruga Bay, Japan
Sagami Bay and Suruga Bay harbor a rich marine biodiversity; however, their outer-shelf scleractinian coral fauna has not been characterized to date. Scleractinian corals were collected by dredge
A review of the diversity and impact of invasive non-native species in tropical marine ecosystems
Tropical marine ecosystems are biologically diverse and economically invaluable. However, they are severely threatened from impacts associated with climate change coupled with localized and regional
First record and range extension of the transversely-dividing azooxanthellate coral Truncatoflabellum mortenseni Cairns and Zibrowius, 1997 (Scleractinia, Flabellidae) in the Persian Gulf, Western Indo-Pacific Ocean
In the Persian Gulf, Azooxanthellate Scleractinia remain understudied compared to their symbiotic counterparts. Here, we report the presence of azooxanthellate coral Truncatoflabellum mortenseni
Temporal distribution and diversity of cold-water corals in the southwest Indian Ocean over the past 25,000 years
Morphological and genetic divergence between Mediterranean and Caribbean populations of Madracis pharensis (Heller 1868) (Scleractinia, Pocilloporidae): too much for one species?
Significant genetic and morphological differences were found between all the examined Madracis species, and between M. pharensis from the Mediterranean Sea and M. luciphila from the Caribbean in particular, and the latter does not represent a zooxanthellate ecomorph of the former but a different species.
New paleoenvironmental insights on the Miocene condensed phosphatic layer of Salento (southern Italy) unlocked by the coral-mollusc fossil archive
From the Late Oligocene to the Late Miocene, the central Mediterranean area was characterized by the extensive deposition of phosphate-rich sediments. They are usually represented by 10 to
Three Records of the Genus Tubastraea (Anthozoa:Hexacorallia: Scleractinia: Dendrophylliidae) from Korea
Three species in the genus Tubastraea from Korea are reported, but they differ with respect to the growth form, intercorallite distance, exsertness from common coenosteum, and the detailed characters of septal arrangement.
Desmophyllum dianthus (Esper, 1794) in the Scleractinian Phylogeny and Its Intraspecific Diversity
DNA sequence data from nuclear (ITS and 28S) and mitochondrial (16S and COI) markers were analyzed for several coral species and for Mediterranean populations of D. dianthus to examine phylogenetic relationships with respect to the principal Scleractinia taxa, check population structure, test the widespread connectivity hypothesis and assess the utility of different nuclear and mitochondrial markers currently in use.
Diversity and distribution of azooxanthellate corals in the Colombian Caribbean
Two main oceanographic factors were identified to play a role in the northeast versus southwest coral fauna separation, La Guajira upwelling system and the Magdalena River influx, which appear to be depth-related.
A Workshop on Deep-sea Species Identification was organized by FAO in Rome, Italy, from 2 to 4 December 2009. The meeting was organized in response to the need for a strategy for the development of
