Many species of corals (an invertebrate animal) thrive in nutrient poor tropical sea waters due to a mutualistic relationship with a group of green algae called zooxanthellae that live only inside the corals. The coral host uses the photosynthetic products produced by the algae. These corals are not found below 100 feet depth in the ocean. Why?
the red, green, or yellow light that the zooxanthellae require to perform photosynthesis does not have enough energy to penetrate the water any deeper than that. Since the coral rely on the these micro-organisms, it will not grow where they can not survive.
In polygynous mammals (one male mating with several females) such as lions and gorillas, when a new male takes over a harem, he quickly kills all the young of the females in the harem as his first act of becoming king of the harem. What hypothesis might explain this barbaric behavior?

do not want to be taking care of other’s young. Only want their genes to be passed onto the next generation.
