Summary
Coral calcification rates
Parameters
Siderastrea siderea coral calcification rates, linear extension rates, crustose coraline algae recruitment, percent area of coral skeletons excavated by bioeroding fauna, coral transplant colony length and width, grazing intensity, community composition (counts), temperature (deg. C), depth (m), salinity, dissolved oxygen (mg/L), pH, virus/bacteria concentration (mL^-1)
Notes
Application
Use of both process and monitoring activities to aid understanding of the resilience of shallow water reef environments.
