Fresh octocoral samples were collected from the eastern Pacific coast during 1999-2002, the Caribbean Sea in 2002 and the Great Barrier Reef during 2000-2002. Small fragments of 1-4 colonies (individuals) were collected per species. Samples derived from museum specimens originally collected from California, Galapagos, the Philippines, Palau and Papua New Guinea were acquired from the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco. Genetic analyses of the zooxanthellae were based on ribosomal DNA internal transcribed spacer 1 (ITS1) region. Symbiodinium clades A, B, C, D and G were identified (and no zoxanthellae). An unrooted phylogenetic tree was created from a range of octocoral taxa based on mitochondrial COII-ATP8-ATP6. To examine the presence, genetic identity and diversity of algal endosymbionts (Symbiodinium) in 114 species from 69 genera (20 families) of octocorals from the Great Barrier Reef, the far eastern Pacific and the Caribbean. To compare patterns of the octocoral-algal symbiosis with the host phylogeny. Numbers of samples investigated from the various locations were: Great Barrier Reef (81), Torres Strait (3), other central Pacific regions (12), South Africa (1), eastern Pacific (27), and the Caribbean Sea (22).

Brief description

146 samples belonging to 69 genera (114 species) from 20 families of octocorals were collected. Fresh octocoral samples were collected from the eastern Pacific coast during 1999-2002, the Caribbean Sea in 2002 and the Great Barrier Reef during 2000-2002. Small fragments of 1-4 colonies (individuals) were collected per species. Samples derived from museum specimens originally collected from California, Galapagos, the Philippines, Palau and Papua New Guinea were acquired from the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco.

Genetic analyses of the zooxanthellae were based on ribosomal DNA internal transcribed spacer 1 (ITS1) region. Symbiodinium clades A, B, C, D and G were identified (and no zoxanthellae).

An unrooted phylogenetic tree was created from a range of octocoral taxa based on mitochondrial COII-ATP8-ATP6.

To examine the presence, genetic identity and diversity of algal endosymbionts (Symbiodinium) in 114 species from 69 genera (20 families) of octocorals from the Great Barrier Reef, the far eastern Pacific and the Caribbean.

To compare patterns of the octocoral-algal symbiosis with the host phylogeny.

Numbers of samples investigated from the various locations were: Great Barrier Reef (81), Torres Strait (3), other central Pacific regions (12), South Africa (1), eastern Pacific (27), and the Caribbean Sea (22).
