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.
Characters: Colonies are mostly caespitose bushes. Branches are tapered and up to 25 millimetres thick. Axial corallites are small and tubular. Radial corallites are of mixed sizes, sometimes alternating in vertical rows and are large and conspicuous, increasing in length down the sides of branches. Colour: Colonies are colourful, usually mixtures of cream, blue, purple, brown and yellow, commonly with purple branch ends and cream corallites, a colour pattern shared with A. valida and A. nana. Similar Species: Acropora valida, which has smaller radial corallites which do not increase in size down the sides of branches, and A. gemmifera, which is digitate and has cup-shaped rather than tubular distal radial corallites. See also A. cophodactyla and A. appressa, which have conspicuous axial corallites. Habitat: Shallow reef environments especially upper reef slopes and outer reef flats. Abundance: Common in the Pacific, uncommon in the Indian Ocean.
