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.
Cycloseris curvata (Hoeksema , 1989 ) Corallum: Solitary and free-living, the immature coralla regularly discoidal, but later folded. Coralla relatively thick, small ones relatively fl at while they become highly arched when larger. Diameter varies between 1.5 and 8.5 cm. Corallites: Septa : Densely packed, straight except where they fuse at the corallum margin. Unequal in thickness and height. The margins are ornamented with fi ne, sharp dentations which become indistinct on the thickened lower order septa. Costae: Almost equal in size; distinct at the corallum margins. Ornamented with small and acute, granular spines. Columella: formed by mingled mass of loosely packed,partly fused trabeculae and paliform lobes with the tips pointing in various directions. Thecae : Solid wall is not granulated and may still show a detachment scar at the aboral side of small specimens.
