The Ecology of symbiosis in some temperate sea anemones

ST. PETERSBURG, FL -

Speaker:  Brian Bingham

Affiliation: Western Washington University

Title: The ecology of symbiosis in some temperate sea anemones

Speaker’s lab interests: We are interested in symbioses between cnidarians (sea anemones, corals, and their relatives) and single-celled algae that reside within them and provide them with photosynthetic energy. These symbioses are particularly widespread in the tropics and are a key feature of reef- building corals, but we focus our attention on symbiotic sea anemones in the genus Anthopleura along the Pacific coast of North America. Along the northern extent of their range, these sea anemones can host one or both of two distinct symbionts: the dinoflagellate Symbiodinium and the chlorophyte Elliptochloris. This flexible association with symbionts from completely different phyla is unique among cnidarians and provides a fascinating system for testing a variety of hypotheses about the biology of cnidarian-algal symbioses.
