Abstract

This paper discusses experimental data and theoretical concepts characterizing the trophic status of symbiotic zooxanthellae and the mechanisms regulating their density in hermatypic corals. Under natural conditions, the growth of zooxanthellae is not limited by the deficiency of nitrogen. The main factor regulating the density of zooxanthellae is their ingestion by the animal host.
