  • The endosymbiotic association between the heart cockle, Clinocardium nuttalli, and an endosymbiotic green alga (zoochlorella) was investigated in the field and laboratory. Specimens were obtained from False Bay, San Juan Island, Washington. Infaunal clams dit not contain symbionts while slightly larger and older semi-infaunal individuals harbored algae in siphonal and mantle tissues.
