BOSTON-- In addition to the normal contingent of biologists from many disciplines, this year's annual meeting of the Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology, which was held here from 3 to 7 January, attracted hundreds of coral reef scientists. Sessions discussed new information on the relationship between corals and their symbiotic algae and also how to farm corals. In addition, the meeting included a session on what allows monitor lizards to simultaneously run and breathe more easily than other lizards can.
