Abstract: Abstract : The genotypes of zooxanthellae associated with eight scleractinian corals and one hydrocoral from a fringing reef of Sesoko Island (Okinawa, Japan) were determined using the single stranded conformational polymorphism (SSCP) of large subunit ribosomal DNA (28S rDNA). Preliminary RFLP analysis of small subunit (18S) rDNA showed that four pocilloporid corals harbored zooxanthellae of Glade C, except one branch of Stylophora hystrix kept at 8% light which contained zooxanthellae of Glade A and C. The …
