Hydrozoan corals of the genus Millepora are abundant in many Indo-Pacific reefs, and by a high cover can dominate shallow-water communities in some coral reef ecosystems (Andréfouët et al. 2014). Many studies have described these hydrocorals (also called fire corals) as opportunistic species that show rapid growth rates, with both high fecundity and… CONTINUE READING
