Expulsion of Symbiodinium by pulsed inflation under hyperthermal stress in Heliofungia actiniformis


The biological or physical mechanisms that cause differences in the susceptibility of corals to thermal stress are not well defined (Wooldridge 2014). Understanding coral responses to thermal stress and tolerance mechanisms is important for predicting how corals will fare with elevated ocean temperatures. Using time-lapse photography, we observed the… (More)
