Can anyone recommend a good reference, or provide me with a protocol, for
measuring zooxanthellae density? I’m particularly concerned about sample
preservation since I can’t process them right away. (I’ll be in the field). I
also want to make sure that I can correlate the zooxanthellae numbers with
either tissue mass or surface area. I’m also not sure exactly what species
I’ll be using, but it will most likely be an Acroporidae or Faviidae.
