Availability of suitable substratum is often a limiting factor for sessile organisms. We studied growth and regeneration of golf ball sponge Cinachyrella cf. cavernosa with and without its aggressive neighbour, soft coral (Zoanthus sansibaricus) in rocky intertidal area of Anjuna (Goa), India to understand impact of spatial competition on these life-history(More)
