Despite recent high impacts of disease in the ocean, quantitative studies of diseases in natural marine populations lag far behind terrestrial systems. Transmission processes are poorly known in relatively open marine systems. We studied infection of sea fans Gorgonia ventalina by the fungus Aspergillus sydowii. To assess detectability and mechanisms of secondary transmission of the fungus, we analyzed the spatial distribution of disease among the fans, using Ripley’s K as a measure of disease… CONTINUE READING
