Experiments were performed in controlled conditions in order to investigate the effect of light and/or feeding on the δ 15 N composition of zooxanthellae and animal tissue of a scleractinian coral, Stylophora pistillata. For this purpose, corals were cultured under 3 light levels (80, 200, and 300 µmol photons m -2 s -1 ) and for each light level, half of the corals were fed twice a week with nat- ural zooplankton while the other half, the control group, were starved. To understand how plankton… Expand
