Abstract: Statement of purpose:
The scope of this dissertation was restricted to
exemplary studies on the effects of spectrum, intensity
and modulation (as described above) of the photic
environment of the common reef coral Pocillopora damicornis and its symbiotic dinoflagellate algae.
Various aspects of its biology were investigated. In some
cases direct comparison was wade with othar species to
emphasize similarities or differences. The central
hypothesis of this dissertation can be stated as follows:
Subtle changes in the spectrum, intensity and modulation
of the natural photic environment can produce a profound
effect on growth, reproduction, primary production and
general metabolism of the reef corals.
