    Photosynthetic sea slugs induce protective changes to the light reactions of the chloroplasts they steal from algae

    Vesa Havurinne, Esa Tyystjärvi
    Slug chloroplasts avoid damage to photosynthesis by maintaining an oxidized electron transfer chain with the help of oxygen-sensitive electron acceptors.

    Bleaching causes loss of disease resistance within the threatened coral species Acropora cervicornis

    Erinn M Muller et al.
    Standing genetic variation for disease resistance may be continuously lost during recurring warm water episodes because of widespread susceptibility of disease-resistant genotypes to bleaching and the independence between these two traits.
