Genetic evidence for a protozoan ( phylum Apicomplexa ) associated with corals of the Muntastraea annularis species complex


Scleractinian corals associate with diverse microbial communities (e.g., Rowan 1998; Rohwer et al. 2001). Some eukaryotic microbes are common, well-known associates of corals; notably dinoflagellates of the genus Symbiodinium (e.g., Trench 1987), endolithic algae (e.g., Lukas 1974), and fungi (e.g., Bentis et al. 2000). Other eukaryotic associates have not… (More)
