Ammonium Uptake by Symbiotic and Aposymbiotic Reef Corals
Abstract:Ammonium is rapidly taken up from seawater by symbiotic Madracis mirabilis, and to a lesser extent by algae (=zooxanthellae) isolated from M. mirabilis, but not by aposymbiotic M. mirabilis. It is concluded that uptake by intact coral is effected by the zooxanthellae.
