Regeneration of artificial lesions was studied as an ecophysiological character in 2 morphs of Porites astreoides and Stephanocoenia michelinii to contribute to a better understanding of their presently unclear taxonomic status. As a reference, regeneration was also studied In 3 species1 morphs of h4adracis. P. astreoides consists of a green and a brown morph, while S. michelinii consists of an encrusting morph with widely spaced corallites and a massive morph with compacted polyps… CONTINUE READING
