Positive Interactions in the Coral Macro and Microbiome.
Researchers now recognize the importance of the coral microbiome, but they often overlook other species that live on corals and influence coral-microbe interactions. These 'interstitial associates' should be incorporated into the metaorganism concept for insights into how facilitations between associates, corals, and their microbiomes can be leveraged in ecology and restoration.
