We reported some time ago that repair of damage to the photosynthetic apparatus is impaired at elevated temperatures, so preventing photodamage in the symbiont should confer thermal tolerance to the corals" In the past decade, scientists have identified symbiont algae in clades from A through H, differing in their genetic and physiological characteristics.
Endosymbionts such as Cardinium can specifically impact such traits, being potentially involved in both interspecific conflict between host and symbiont, as well as intraspecific sexual conflict between the sexes (see Martin & Gage 2007).
