about this item

Oceanographers explore diseases of coral which have been multiplying rapidly over the past few decades and threaten many reefs around the world. Their topics include the history of coral disease research, the innate immune system in cnidarians, the physiology of skeletogenesis in scleractinian coral, aspergillosis of Caribbean Sea fan corals, skeletal growth anomalies in corals, cyanobacteria-associated colored-band diseases of the Atlantic and Caribbean, coral "bleaching" as a generalized stress response to environmental disturbance, biocontainment practices for coral disease research, and chemiluminescent methods for quantifying DNA abasic lesions in scleractinian coral tissues.
