Metacommunity ecology of Symbiodiniaceae hosted by the coral Galaxea fascicularis

Wepfer, Patricia H.; Nakajima, Yuichi; Hui, Francis; Mitarai, Satoshi; Economo, Evan P.


Coral-algae symbiosis represents the trophic and structural basis of coral reef ecosystems. However, despite global threats to coral reefs and the dependence of coral health and stress resistance upon such mutualisms, little is known about the community ecology of endosymbiotic Symbiodiniaceae. Concepts and methods from metacommunity ecology may be used to help us understand the assembly and stability of symbiont communities and the mutualisms they comprise. In this study, we sampled colonies...[Show more]
