Physiological mechanisms, ecological processes and phylogenetic history are associated with biogeographic patterns and tolerance to climate changes, which includes ocean warming and acidification. The most diverse marine environment - the coral reefs - have been suffering with bleaching and decreasing on calcification rates, especially scleractinian coral species occupying oligotrophic,...
The current physiological diversity reflects a temporal moment of the entire life history, and species that are recognized as discrete units actually represent a continuum of biological forms and functions linked to each other through space and time. Closely related species are more similar due to the recent divergence, while those more distantly related tend to share functional dissimi...
A functional association established by the symbiosis between cnidarians and photosynthetic microalgae (known as zooxanthellae) is found in most shallow-water coral species. Regarding the energy supply, photosynthesis reaches up to 100% of energetic requirements in corals from strongly oligotrophic environments, while heterotrophy contributes up to 60% of the energy demand in eutrophic,...
