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.
Common on vertical surfaces exposed to surge, especially along the west coast of Hawai'i. Color ranges from light blue to purplish brown, depending on density of reflective sclerites in body wall. Endemic to Hawai'i. Formerly known as Anthelia edmondsoni.
