Fatty Acid Composition of the Caribbean Coral Manicina Areolata
Abstract:Fatty acid compositions of replicate samples of Manicina areolata from the Florida Keys have been analyzed to determine the degree of intraspecific variability. Variability of acids comprising at least 20% of the total is not large. Fatty acids may be useful in comparative studies of these and other corals.
