In real world, everyday life, most of us use the names of plants and animals that are various referred to as “common,” “vernacular,” “trivial,” “colloquial,” or even “farmer’s” or “fisherman’s names.”
My first encounter with a dartfish in the wild happened unexpectedly in a shallow lagoon on the Great Barrier Reef.
“We can now track the fate of the algae during [coral] bleaching as well as during initiation of the symbiosis.”
First discovered by Dr. John E. (Jack) Randall off Rangiroa in 1970. As noted in the current issue of CORAL, he caught the first specimen on his daughter’s birthday and named the species Anthias lori in 1976, and it later became Pseudanthias lori.
To help make the best of the challenging weeks ahead, we have decided to open our back issue vault and offer free access to the full CORAL Magazine digital archive through the end of May 2020.
