Flexibility in Red Sea Tridacna maxima-Symbiodiniaceae associations supports environmental niche adaptation datasets

Benjamin Hume, Susann Rossbach, Anny Cardenas, Gabriela Perna, Christian Voolstra & Carlos Duarte
Giant clams (Tridacninae) are important members of Indo-Pacific coral reefs and among the few bivalve groups that live in a symbiosis with unicellular algae (Symbiodiniaceae). Despite the importance of these endosymbiotic dinoflagellates for clam ecology, the diversity and specificity of these associations remains relatively poorly studied, especially in the Red Sea. Here, we used the internal transcribed spacer 2 (ITS2) rDNA gene region to investigate Symbiodiniaceae communities associated with Red Sea Tridacna maxima clams. We...
