Studies on the distribution and photosynthetic chloroplast pigments of symbiotic zooxanthellae in the reef-building coral MOil/as/rea allllularis Ellis and Solander strongly suggest that photoadaptation to decreasing light intensity occurs within a population inhabiting the fore-reef of a West Indian (Jamaican) coral reef. It is suggested that the photoadaptation allows for the extension of the depth range of the species. The responses of M. allllularis and its zooxanthellae to transplantation… CONTINUE READING
