As a result of experimental breakage, polyps ofthe solitary reef coral Fungiu granulosa Klunzinger, 1879 formed fragments that fractured either radially along the septa, or perpendicular to the septal edges. Recovery was strongly dependent on fracture orientation, fragment size, and percent breakage. Corals with 51-90% breakage either regenerated very slowly or lost mass and died during the 8 months of the study. In those with lo-SO% breakage, both tissue and skeletal regeneration increased… CONTINUE READING
