Table 2: Results of the three-way analyses of variance (ANOVA) testing the effect of time, temperature and feeding on autotrophic carbon parameters (carbon lost and translocation as well as incorporation rates and carbon fixed remaining in symbionts and coral host), after 48 hours in Stylophora pistillata.
