Abstract

Julia Saper studied feeding in captive scleractinian corals. She found significant variation in the feeding rates of corals across and within species and developed techniques to improve the detection ingested prey using fluorescent markers. Her results provide a foundation to expand feeding regimes to improve the health of captive corals.
