Disturbance and monopolization of a spatial resource by Zoanthus
sociatus (Coelenterata, Anthozoa).
Genomic diversity of vibrios associated with the Brazilian coral Mussismilia hispida and its sympatric zoanthids (Palythoa caribaeorum, Palythoa variabilis and Zoanthus
They are usually associated with Zoanthus
colonies, which display a green color due to their photosynthesizing microalgae (BARRADAS et al.
Menon (1902, 1914, 1926) revealed that the genera Sphenopus and Protopalythoa (family Sphenopidae) produce zoanthella, and the genera Isaurus and Zoanthus
(family Zoanthidae) produce zoanthina.
More interestingly such antifilarial effect has also been reported against human lymphatic filarial worm, Brugia malayi with crude extracts of green zoanthus
(8) and with Xylocarpus granatum, Tinospora crispa and Andrographis paniculata (9).
Zoanthids in the genus Zoanthus
also exhibit mixed strategies in that the growing colony breaks up into separate ramets, but the ramets frequently persist in large clonal aggregates (Karlson 1986).
