New article on mesophotic corals out!


The open access article published in Frontiers investigates mechanisms of photoacclimatization in four coral genera (Porites, Leptoseris, Pachyseris, and Podabacia )  over a 60 m depth gradient in the central Red Sea. The data support a view that depth acclimatization of corals in the mesophotics is facilitated by Symbiodinium physiology, which in turn is host-specific.
