  author={Carmen A Belda-Baillie and Margarette Sison and Virginie Silvestre and K. Villamor and Virginia D. Monje and Diana G{\'o}mez and Brett K. Baillie},
This study investigated the effects of different clonal strains of Symbiodinium sp. (zooxanthellae) on clam growth and survival, while monitoring the persistence of the induced symbioses in outdoor tanks and in the field using allozyme and random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analyses. Aposymbiotic clam larvae that were inoculated with homologous zooxanthellae (cultured or freshly isolated from the same host species) or heterologous zooxanthellae (cultured from different host species) had… CONTINUE READING
