Tung-Yung Fan, Jan-Jung Li, Sheng-Xian Ie and Lee-Shing Fang (2002) Lunar periodicity of larval release by pocilloporid corals in southern Taiwan. Zoological Studies 41(3): 288-294. Lunar patterns of larval release by 3 brooding corals, Seriatopora hystrix, Pocillopora damicornis, and Stylophora pistillata, in southern Taiwan were investigated. Corals were collected and maintained in outdoor, flow-through systems to quantify nightly release of larvae. Planulation of S. hystrix and P. damicornis… CONTINUE READING
