Light is absorbed by photosynthetic algal symbionts (i.e. zooxanthellae) and by chromophoric fluorescent proteins (FP) in reef-building coral tissue. We used a streak-camera spectrograph equipped with a pulsed, blue laser diode (50 ps, 405 nm) to simultaneously resolve the fluorescence spectra and kinetics for both the FP and the zooxanthellae. Shallow water (<9 m)-dwelling Acropora spp. and Plesiastrea versipora specimens were collected from Okinawa, Japan, and Sydney, Australia, respectively....[Show more]
