Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Maximum depth from Ref. 100943. Has moderate bleaching level and moderate estimated mortality (10-40%) in Palau (Ref. 66144). Primary frame-building coral of fringing and offshore reefs in UAE (Ref. 102838). Mature gametes are shed into the coelenteron and spawned through the mouth. Life cycle: The zygote develops into a planktonic planula larva. Metamorphosis begins with early morphogenesis of tentacles, septa and pharynx before larval settlement on the aboral end (Ref. 833).
