Respiratory and photosynthetic rates of green and aposymbiotic Hydra viridis (Swiss strain) and of their freshly isolated symbiotic algae (FISA) were compared. The effects of some soluble organic nutrients on these parameters were examined. The respiratory rates of intact green or aposymbiotic hydra and the FISA of a single symbiotic hydranth were essentially equal to each other. Per milligram of protein, the relative respiration rates were 1: 1.47 :3.4 for green hydra, aposymbionts, and FISA… Expand
Photoautotrophic growth of Noctiluca scintillans with the endosymbiont Pedinomonas noctilucae
TLDR
The relationship of pho- tosynthesis with irradiance was characterized by low intensity of light saturation and absence or weak photoinhibition, showing efficient utilization of a wide range of light intensities. Expand
A comparative study of tentacle regeneration and number in symbiotic and aposymbiotic Hydra viridis: Effect of zoochlorellae
TLDR
In H. viridis the endosymbiotic zoochlorellae exert a significant stimulatory and morphogenic effect in the light and in the dark, and it is suggested that a distinction should be made between the stimulatory effect on regeneration rate and the Morphogenic effect on the final number of tentacles or buds.

TLDR
It is suggested that the Chlorella/Hydra symbiosis was initiated originally by an infection of pre Adapted hydra by preadapted chlorellae and through intracellular interalgal competition and competition between dissimilar infected cells and polyps, the present-day stable symbiosis has evolved.

HOST FEEDING REGIME AND ZOOXANTHELLAL PHOTOSYNTHESIS IN THE ANEMONE, AIPTASIA PALLIDA (VERRILL).
TLDR
Results suggest that, under these conditions, starvation did not alter the photosynthetic capability of the zooxanthellae but decreased total photosynthate translocated to the host by decreasing zooxanhellal density within the host. Expand
Autotrophic Eukaryotic Freshwater Symbionts
TLDR
This report reports on so-called endosymbiotic systems in which the heterotrophic partner encloses the autotrophic one, and defines the term symbiosis as a permanent co-habitation of dissimilar organisms with physical contact and mutual benefit. Expand
ON THE EVOLUTIONARY CONSTRAINT SURFACE OF HYDRA
TLDR
It is suggested that this surface is an example of a general class of evolutionary constraint surfaces derived from the conjunction of evolutionary theory and the theory of ecological resource budgets, and correspond to microevolutionary domains. Expand

SYMBIOSIS OF HYDRA AND ALGAE. II. EFFECTS OF LIMITED FOOD AND STARVATION ON GROWTH OF SYMBIOTIC AND APOSYMBIOTIC HYDRA
TLDR
It is concluded that symbiotic algae augment growth, budding, and survival of C. viridissima (Carolina strain 1960) by a mechanism which does not appear to involve gussia, and appears to depress the rate of protein catabolism. Expand
Metabolic relationships between green hydra and its symbiotic algae.
TLDR
Hydro that maintain algal symbionts evidenced three modes of metabolism depending upon the nutritional state of the host and the photoperiodic conditions under which the animals were maintained, which is hypothesized to be due to the metabolic activities of the symbiotic algae associated with reproduction and development.

TLDR
Pulse and pulse-chase experiments were used to study the movement of photosynthetically fixed 14C from alga to animal tissue in green hydra, and preliminary experiments suggest that the degree of transport is determined primarily by the amount of surplus photosynthate available to algal symbionts and not by any capacity of the animal to regulate algal release.

SYMBIOSIS OF HYDRA AND ALGAE. I. EFFECTS OF SOME ENVIRONMENTAL CATIONS ON GROWTH OF SYMBIOTIC AND APOSYMBIOTIC HYDRA
TLDR
Under controlled conditions in the laboratory, with daily feeding, Chlorohydra viridissima grew exponentially in a solution containing calcium, sodium, magnesium, potassium, chloride and bicarbonate ions, and in the absence of environmental sodium aposymbiotic hydra disintegrated several days sooner than normal green individuals.

Respiration and photosynthesis in Convoluta roscoffensis Graff, infected with various symbionts.
TLDR
Observations in vivo and with thick and thin EM sections showed that the number of symbionts/mm3 worm varied with symbiont species, and mutual shading may be responsible for a less efficient photosynthesis. Expand
Maltose excretion by the symbiotic algae of Hydra viridis
TLDR
The experimental results were consistent with the hypothesis that maltose synthesis is UDPG -dependent, but direct proof of this was obtained, and it is suggested that the host might be able to control maltose excretion from its zoochlorellae by variations in the intracellular pH of the gastrodermal cells, but evidence for such changes is still lacking.

PHOTOSYNTHETIC CAPACITIES AND PHOTOSYNTHETIC ACTION SPECTRA OF ENDOZOIC ALGAE OF THE MASSIVE CORAL FAVIA
TLDR
A green alga Ostreobium (Siphonales) can live and photosynthesize within the massive coral and shows saturation at or below 1000 erg, and a high activity band was noticeable around 540 nm, which was also visible in the in vivo excitation spectrum of fluorescence. Expand
THE ROLE OF NUTRITION IN THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE GREEN HYDRA SYMBIOSIS
TLDR
The hypothesis is proposed that host cells permit symbiotic algae to divide because they ‘recognise’ their capacity or potential for maltose synthesis and release, which is similar to a process of ecological colonisation. Expand

TLDR
It appears that the English symbiont has great morphological plasticity, as its structure is greatly modified depending upon the host in which it resides and the conditions under which the host is maintained. Expand
Oxygen consumption in the symbiotic hydra Hydra viridis
TLDR
Treatment of the algal-bearing animals with the photosynthetic inhibitor DCMU demonstrated that oxygen produced by symbiotic algae as a result of photosynthesis may supply part of the host's respiratory needs. Expand
