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 irregularly corymbose with elongate tapering branchlets. Axial corallites are tubular. Radial corallites are usually in neat rows and are distinctively nariform in shape. Colour: Cream or pale brown with blue branch tips (which may photograph pink), cream with brown corallites or greenish-brown with purple or blue corallites. Similar Species: Acropora cerealis, which has interlocking branches and radial corallites with flaring lips. Acropora valida has appressed radial corallites. See also A. latistella and A. subulata, which have smaller branchlets and corallites. Habitat: All Acropora assemblages but especially those of upper reef slopes. Abundance: Common.
