Blocks cut from Porites lutea were laid on the fore reef slope, reef flat and a lagoonal patch reef at Lizard Island, in the Northern Great Barrier Reef, and replicates removed from each environment at intervals of three months over a period of one and a half years. Variations in bioeroders and bioaccretors were noted. Microfaunas are far more numerous than macrofaunas as block colonizers; the principal borers are polychaete worms, whereas encrusters are molluscs, bryozoans, serpulids and… CONTINUE READING
