Article
Full-text available
Symbiodiniaceae communities in some corals often shuffle or switch after severe bleaching events, one of the major threats to coral survival in a world with climate change. In this study we reciprocally transplanted five Leptoria phrygia colonies between two sites with significantly different temperature regimes and monitored them for 12 months. Ou...
Article
Full-text available
Coral reef ecosystems are under the direct threat of increasing atmospheric greenhouse gases, which increase seawater temperatures in the oceans and lead to bleaching events. Global bleaching events are becoming more frequent and stronger, and understanding how corals can tolerate and survive high-temperature stress should be accorded paramount pri...
Article
Full-text available
Coral reefs in the Anthropocene are being subjected to unprecedented levels of stressors, including local disturbances—such as overfishing, habitat destruction, and pollution—and large-scale destruction related to the global impacts of climate change—such as typhoons and coral bleaching. Thus, the future of corals and coral reefs in any given commu...

The Symbiodinaceae are paradoxical in that they play a fundamental role in the success of scleractinian corals, but also in their dismissal when under stress. In the past decades, the discovery of the endosymbiont's genetic and functional diversity has led people to hope that some coral species can survive bleaching events by associating with a str...
Data
Decapods were sampled with a 1 m**2 MOCNESS (mainly upper 1000 m) in the northern Benguela Current during three cruises in December 2009, September/October 2010 and February 2011. Although pelagic decapods are abundant members of the micronekton community, information about their ecophysiology is very limited. Species-specific regional distribution...

Environmental and biological reef monitoring was conducted in Almirante Bay (Bahía Almirante) in Bocas del Toro, Panama, to assess impacts from anthropogenic developments. An integrated monitoring investigated how seasonal temperature stress, turbidity, eutrophication and physical impacts threatened reef health and biodiversity throughout the regio...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
We examined the ability of the two hard coral species Agaricia tenuifolia and Porites furcata to store lipids under natural conditions, under experimental starvation (weekly vs. daily feeding) and under heat stress. P. furcata fed more and accumulated greater lipid quantities than A. tenuifolia. Overall, lipid levels in situ showed an inverse relat...

Project
On occasion of the 3rd International Year of the Reef (IYOR 2018), and beyond, this project aims to highlight risks and possible solutions for the future of coral reefs in an anthropocene context
Project
The overall aim of this study is the research on resilience and resistance of coral ecosystems to anthropogenic impacts as a function of contemporary and evolutionary adaptations. Findings will allow to quantify some coral species’ niche boundaries and to predict future survival chances for them under the on-­going anthropogenic impacts.
