Abstract In shelter symbioses, the recruitment, growth, and lifespan of host organisms influence the life history characteristics of symbiotic guests. Corkscrew sea anemones Bartholomea annulata (Le Sueur, 1817) host diverse crustacean ectosymbionts in the Tropical Western Atlantic, some of which are cleaner shrimps that attract and clean Caribbean reef fishes. These sea anemones potentially function as short-lived cleaning stations due to their high mortality and short lifespans relative to… CONTINUE READING
