Abstract

[Extract] Deposition of aragonite skeletons by scleractinian corals typically starts immediately after larval settlement and metamorphosis. However, following the November 2011 coral mass spawning event, we observed that many of our experimental Acropora millepora recruits still lacked a skeleton at 30 days following spawning.
