Predation on reef-building corals: multiscale variation in the density of three corallivorous gastropods, Drupella spp.
Abstract Feeding aggregations of three corallivorous gastropods, Drupella cornus, D. fragum and D. rugosa, have caused considerable coral damage on reefs across the Indo-West Pacific. DistributionExpand
Corallivorous gastropods in Hong Kong
Hong Kong’s coral communities support two muricid gastropod species which feed on live coral tissue: Drupella rugosa and Cronia margariticola. They strip the coral skeleton of tissue, leaving a whiteExpand
Tissue injury predicts colony decline in reef-building corals
Tissue injury, in which the skeleton is stripped of living tissue, is common in reef-build- ing corals and has potentially important demographic consequences. To examine the significance of tissueExpand
Genetic distinctness of three widespread and morphologically variable species of Drupella (Gastropoda, Muricidae)
Corallivorous gastropods of the genus Drupella have caused considerable damage to corals at widely separated reefs in the Indo-Pacific. Morphological variability of Drupella species within andExpand
Population dynamics of Turbonilla sp. (Pyramidellidae, Opisthobranchia), an ectoparasite of giant clams in mariculture
Abstract Epidemics of an ectoparasitic gastropod, Turbonilla sp., have caused substantial mortality of juvenile Tridacna gigas kept in land-based seawater tanks and on racks elevated off theExpand
Six species of Calyptotheca (Bryozoa, Cheilostomata, Lanceoporidae) from the Gulf of Carpentaria and northern Australia, with description of a new species.
A new diagnosis is presented for Calyptotheca Harmer, 1957 and six species are described from the Gulf of Carpentaria: C. wasinensis (Waters, 1913) (type species), C. australis (Haswell, 1880), C.Expand
Hong Kong's coral communities: surviving adversity?
Situated at the northern edge of the tropical Indo-Pacific and on the southern coastline of China (22°N), the waters of Hong Kong’s mainland and 236 islands support high-latitude coral communities.Expand
