Symbiodiniaceae cell densities in feces of coral reef fish, sediments and seawater in Mo'orea, French Polynesia, July-August 2019

Carsten Grupstra, Kristen Rabbitt, Lauren Howe-Kerr & Adrienne Correa
Background: The microbiomes of foundation (habitat-forming) species such as corals and sponges underpin the biodiversity, productivity, and stability of ecosystems. Consumers shape communities of foundation species through trophic interactions, but the role of consumers in dispersing the microbiomes of such species is rarely examined. For example, stony corals rely on a nutritional symbiosis with single-celled endosymbiotic dinoflagellates (family Symbiodiniaceae) to construct reefs. Most corals acquire Symbiodiniaceae from the environment, but the processes that make Symbiodiniaceae...
