How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Article
Full-text available
At the current rate of climate change, it is unlikely that multicellular organisms will be able to adapt to changing environmental conditions through genetic recombination and natural selection alone. Thus, it is critical to understand alternative mechanisms that allow organisms to cope with rapid environmental changes. Here, we use the sea anemone...
Preprint
Most multicellular organisms harbor microbial colonizers that provide various benefits to their hosts. Although these microbial communities may be host species- or even genotype-specific, the associated bacterial communities can respond plastically to environmental changes. In this study, we estimated the relative contribution of environment and ho...
Article
Full-text available
Although the 14C-method remains one of the most sensitive measures of primary production in marine ecosystems, few data from coastal sublittoral areas are available. We applied an integrated approach to quantify the benthic (PPs) and pelagic (PPw) contributions to total primary production (PPt) in a 17-m deep coastal site. From March 2015 to March...
Article
Full-text available
Considerable attention has recently been focussed on the potential involvement of DNA methylation in regulating gene expression in cnidarians. Much of this work has been centered on corals, in the context of changes in methylation perhaps facilitating adaptation to higher seawater temperatures and other stressful conditions. Although first proposed...

Article
Full-text available
Microbial communities confer multiple beneficial effects to their multicellular hosts. To evaluate the evolutionary and ecological implications of the animal-microbe interactions, it is essential to understand how bacterial colonization is secured and maintained during the transition from one generation to the next. However, the mechanisms of symbi...
Article
The influence of the freshwater runoff on marine prokaryotes has been largelly studied in the pelagic environment, little is known about the effects on the prokaryotes in coastal sediments. We investigated the distribution of benthic prokaryotes in the northern Adriatic Sea, when an extreme Po River flood event determined high heterogeneity along t...

The “metaorganism” concept means that in the environment, all multicellular hosts are associate with microorganisms. 1. Host mechanisms involved in recognition and establishment of specific bacterial colonization. 2. Bacterial function and localization during development.
