Abstract The depth of skeleton occupied by tissue was measured in 284 colonies of massive Porites from 46 reefs along the length of the Great Barrier Reef. These colonies ranged in height from 42 mm to 8 m. Average tissue layer thickness was 5.43 ±1.48mm (range 2.13–10.20 mm). The thickness of the tissue layer did not vary with species. The tissue layer thinned from the summit to the sides of all but the smallest colonies. It also increased in thickness with increasing colony size and varied… CONTINUE READING
