Reproductive isolation and genetic differentiation of a scleractinian coral Mycedium elephantotus

  title={Reproductive isolation and genetic differentiation of a scleractinian coral Mycedium elephantotus},
  author={C.-F. Dai and T S Fan and J.-K. Yu},
Sexual reproduction and genetic variation of the scleractinian coral Mycedium elephantotus at Maoao (MO), Yenliao Bay, northern Taiwan, and at Tiaoshi (TS), Nanwan Bay, southern Taiwan, were studied from 1990 to 1996. M. elephantotus is a hermaphroditic broadcast spawner with an annual reproductive cycle. Gametogenesis of the MO population began in January, and spawning occurred in July-August. In the TS populations, there were 2 reproductive groups with different timing of gametogenesis and… CONTINUE READING
