Dear Coral Listers,

Are you wondering which *Symbiodinium* types your favourite study species
are associated with in the world's hottest seas? Here is your chance to
find out. We surveyed 46 hard and soft coral genera around the Arabian
Peninsula and conducted next-generation sequencing of the ITS2 marker gene
of 892 samples.

symbionts in the genus Symbiodinium around the Arabian Peninsula. Journal
of Biogeography, 44, 674-686.
