Large-scale study reveals new insights into coral and symbiotic algae partnership

Eroded Orbicella

A large-scale study of Caribbean coral has yielded discoveries on the pairing process between an endangered coral and the microscopic symbiotic algae they rely on for survival. See press release.

Symbiodinium biogeography tracks environmental and geographic patterns rather than host genetics in a key Caribbean reef-builder, Orbicella annularis, is published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, by Emma Kennedy, Linda Tonk, Nicola Foster, Iliana Chollett, Juan Ortiz, Sophie Dove, Ove Hoegh-Guldberg, Peter Mumby and Jamie Stevens.
