Calcification rate data:
Note that only some of CoralNet's labels have rates provided, and many of those labels only have rates provided in one region.
You can view all the rates CoralNet provides in CSV format here:
Rates are in units of kg CaCO3 m-2 yr-1. A rate above 0 means that the label's presence contributes to positive carbonate production (i.e., calcification). A rate below 0 means that the label's presence contributes to negative carbonate production (i.e., bioerosion).
CoralNet's calcification rates are derived from ReefBudget's data.
Colonies are hemispherical or helmet-shaped and may be over 4 metres across. They usually form ?micro-atolls? in intertidal habitats. The surface is usually smooth.
Colour: Usually cream or yellow but may be bright colours in shallow water.
