Fig. D1. Variation in maximum (Fv/Fm) quantum yields of photosystem II among Symbiodinium typeshosted by Acropora millepora, fornative and transplanted coral fragments located at Magnetic Island in the central Great Barrier Reef region during December 2008. Symbols above standard error (SE) bars indicate no statistical difference with ANOVA (F 3,17 = 32.5, p < 0.0001) and Tukey’s post hoc test (α= 0.001). Sample sizes were: native D type = 10, transplant D type = 3, C2 + D = 5, C2 = 3. Note that native coral fragments were normally pigmented and transplant fragments were visually bleached.


 

Table D1.i. One-way analysis of variance of the effect of Symbiodinium type on maximum quantum yields of photosystem II (Fv/Fm) in native and transplanted Acropora millepora fragments located at Magnetic Island in the central Great Barrier Reef region during December 2008. Significant difference at α = 0.05 are highlighted in bold.
