    • Collaborative Research: Ontogenic change in Cnidarian-algal symbioses: A genomic and ecologic perspective 

      Mary Alice Coffroth Principal Investigator (2014-04-02)
      PROJECT SUMMARY<br/>The symbiosis between corals (Cnidaria:Hexacorallia:Scleractinia) and photosynthetic dinoflagellate symbionts (Alveolata: Dinophycea: Symbiodinium) provides the foundation and structure of the ...
    • Dissertation Research: Mechanisms and consequences of flexibility in mutualistic relationships 

      Mary Alice Coffroth Principal Investigator (2014-04-02)
      At the foundation of many biological communities are mutualisms in which a relatively large, long-lived host organism provides habitat to symbiotic partners in return for reproductive, energetic and/or defensive resources. ...
    • Dynamics of cnidarian-algal symbioses 

      Mary Alice Coffroth Principal Investigator (2014-04-02)
      Symbioses between cnidarians and dinoflagellates in the genus Symbiodinium are widespread in the marine environment. Their importance to reef-building corals and reef nutrient cycles is well documented and loss of these ...
    • Ontogeny and Dynamics of Cnidarian-Algal Symbioses 

      Mary Alice Coffroth Principal Investigator (2014-04-02)
      Symbioses between cnidarians and dinoflagellates in the genus Symbiodinium are widespread in the marine environment. Their importance to reef-building corals and reef nutrient cycles is well documented, but surprisingly ...
    • Ontogeny and Dynamics of Cnidarian-Algal Symbioses 

      Mary Alice Coffroth Principal Investigator (2014-04-02)
      9530057 Coffroth Symbioses between cnidarians and dinoflagellates in the genus Symbiodinium are widespread in the marine environment. Their importance to reef-building corals and reef nutrient cycles is well documented, ...
    • Population Genetics of a Clonal Gorgonian: Research Fellowship in Marine Biotechnology 

      Mary Alice Coffroth Principal Investigator (2014-04-02)
      Clonal growth is a common reproductive strategy among sessile marine invertebrates. Although the pervasiveness of this strategy implies success, the relative contribution of asexual versus sexual reproduction to long term ...
