Growth rate (Montipora digitata)

ID: 60

Class: Physiological

Description:

Typically, the yearly extension for branching and massive corals, or simple linear extension. Growth rate is sometimes measured using different dimensions (e.g., diameter and radius) or over shorter periods of time (e.g., month), which are indicated by measurement standards and methodologies, and so values may need to be standardised before comparisons among measurements can be made.
