Comparison showing the relative change in measured traits from day 1 to day 14 for the host and symbiont at 32 °C, including ΔF/FM' (effective quantum yield of photosystem II), FV/FM (maximum quantum yield of photosystem II), gross oxygen production, symbiont density, chlorophyll a, host and symbiont superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione (GSx), catalase (CAT; and symbiont catalase-like activity), dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) and dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) in Acropora millepora (blue bars) and Stylophora pistillata (orange bars). Calculated as the relative change at the final time-point between the control and the treatment (Xtreatment – Xcontrol/Xcontrol). Asterisks indicate significant differences between species at **P < 0.01 and ***P < 0.001.
