Most coral species off Australia’s west coast spawn in the austral autumn (March–April), with a few species also spawning in the southern spring or early summer (November–December). This is the reverse timing to spawning recorded off Australia’s east coast. Porites lutea, a gonochoric broadcast spawner that is common on Australia’s west coast, is shown here(More)
A 0.6 hectare artificial reef of local rock and recycled concrete sleepers was constructed in December 2006 at Parker Point in the industrial port of Dampier, western Australia, with the aim of providing an environmental offset for a nearshore coral community lost to land reclamation. Corals successfully colonised the artificial reef, despite the relatively(More)

This study uses information derived from cores to describe the Holocene accretion history of coral reefs in the macrotidal (up to 11 m tidal range) Buccaneer Archipelago of the southern Kimberley coast, Western Australia. The internal architecture of all cored reefs is broadly similar, constituting well-preserved detrital coral fragments, predominantly(More)
