Abstract

Grace Al Moajil-Cole studied the effect of direct contact between common macrolagae and coral on their host microbial communities on Magnetic Island. She found that the bacterial community of the coral remained unchanged when in direct contact with macroalgae. Her results are important in understanding the effects of macroalgae on coral health.
