Zooxanthellae and zoochlorellae from summer (July 2004) and winter (December 2004 and February 2005) were measured, and cell volumes calculated assuming spherical algae.
For chlorophyll analysis, filters containing zooxanthellae or zoochlorellae were ground to a pulp in a 10-ml glass tissue homogenizer with a motorized Teflon pestle, using the appropriate solvent (100% HPLC-grade acetone and 100% HPLC-grade methanol for zooxanthellae and zoochlorellae, respectively).
They were last fed 5 days before zoochlorellae were isolated from five small green anemones selected randomly from the stock maintained in the seawater table.
However, the zoochlorellae sequence grouped with sequences from Paradoxia, Coccomyxa glaronensis, and the Ginkgo endophytes, with a bootstrap value of 89.
