The unexamined diversity in the 'Coral Triangle'
Research on zoantharians, a group of animals related to corals and anemones, by researchers James Reimer of the University of the Ryukyus in Okinawa, Japan, Angelo Poliseno of Universita Politecna delle Marche in Italy, and Bert Hoeksema from Naturalis Biodiversity Center, Netherlands, has demonstrated how little we know about marine diversity in the so-called 'center of marine biodiversity' located in the central Indo-Pacific Ocean. The study was published in the open-access journal ZooKeys.
