The light microclimate of phototrophic endoliths growing within the scleractinian corals Porites cylindrica and Montipora monasteriata was described by scalar irradiance microprobe measurements within different layers of the coral skeleton. Characterisation of the pigments in individual layers was done by reflectance spectroscopy with fibre-optic radiance microprobes. The spectral measurements showed the presence of an endolithic community largely comprised of the green alga Ostreobium sp… CONTINUE READING
