  1. Results of marginal analysis of the photosynthetic performance (F v /F m and Q m ) of high- and low-\( \mu ^{\prime}_{{S,m}} \) corals. Marginal analysis of F v /F m performed with values normalized to initial because the dynamic inversion of values (seen at day 4 in Fig. 1b; Additional file 3: Figure S3) makes marginal analysis insensitive to absolute differences over time
