Symbiosis is when two organisms live together in a relationship in which at least one of them benefits. Coral reef ecosystems are teeming with symbiotic relationships.

This is commonly described as “coral bleaching” (Barnes, R.S.K. and Hughes, 1999; Lalli and Parsons, 1995). If the polyps go for too long without zooxanthellae, coral bleaching can result in the coral's death. Because of their intimate relationship with zooxanthellae, reef-building corals respond to the environment like plants.

Coral reefs are one of the most biological diverse ecosystems on Earth. Marine species rey on the reef ecosystem for survival and many other animals and plants inhabiting the coral reef ecosystem have developed symbiotic relationships in order to survive.

The mutually beneficial relationship between algae and modern corals — which provides algae with shelter, gives coral reefs their colors and supplies both organisms with nutrients — began more than 210 million years ago, according to a new study by an international team of scientists including researchers from Princeton University. The findings suggest that this symbiotic relationship is ...

Symbiosis on the Coral Reefs. Symbiosis is “a close, prolonged association between two or more different organisms of different species”. A symbiotic relationship is always inter-specific, meaning that it occurs between two different species. Intra-specific, or relationships within a single species, are rarely considered symbiotic.

Coral Reef Symbiosis Symbiosis comes from the words " sym " which means together and " biosis " which means life.Symbiosis occurs when two organisms create a union in which each is benefited by the other. Coral lives a symbiotic life.Inside the sac of each coral polyp lives a one-celled algae called zooxanthellae (zoo-zan-thel-y). The algae gives off oxygen and other nutrients ...

This lesson introduces the idea of interrelationships among organisms and how these could help them persist in a coral reef ecosystem. Students will learn about symbiotic relationships, with mutualism among coral and zooxanthellae as the model organisms in the first lesson and then moving on to parasitism and mutualism.
