reef endemism, host specificity and temporal stability in populations of symbiotic dinoflagellates from two ecologically dominant caribbean corals.the dinoflagellate genus symbiodinium forms symbioses with numerous protistan and invertebrate metazoan hosts. however, few data on symbiont genetic structure are available, hindering predictions of how these populations and their host associations will fair in the face of global climate change.200919603078
fine-scale diversity and specificity in the most prevalent lineage of symbiotic dinoflagellates (symbiodinium, dinophyceae) of the caribbean.the success of coral reefs is due to obligate mutualistic symbioses involving invertebrates and photosynthetic dinoflagellate symbionts belonging to the genus symbiodinium. in the caribbean, the vast majority of octocorals and other invertebrate hosts associate with symbiodinium clade b, and more selectively, with a single lineage of this clade, symbiodinium b1/b184. although b1/b184 represents the most prevalent symbiodinium in the caribbean, there is little evidence supporting fine-scale diver ...200414717900
phylogenetic identification of symbiotic dinoflagellates via length heteroplasmy in domain v of chloroplast large subunit (cp23s)-ribosomal dna sequences.a protocol that takes advantage of length heteroplasmy in domain v of chloroplast large subunit (cp23s)-ribosomal dna to identify members of the symbiotic dinoflagellate genus symbiodinium is presented. this protocol is highly specific for symbiodinium, can provide intercladal and intracladal identification of a particular symbiodinium isolate, and can detect multiple symbiodinium chloroplast genotypes simultaneously in the same isolate, making his technique attractive for a variety of research ...200312876648
