CARIBBEAN CORAL REEF BIOLOGY AND
ECOLOGY

1. What forms the massive structure that is the base of this Caribbean modern coral reef?
*Limestone & calcium carbonate skeleton produced by corals
2. What are the conditions under which corals in the reef grow best?
*Shallow, tropical waters. Temp warm, nutrients scarce, sedimentation rates low
3. Why do coral morphologies differ on a reef?
*In response to wave strength, sedimentation and amount of sunlight.
4. Where in the reef are flat corals found?
*Deeper parts (fore reef), ideal for collecting sunlight
5. Where are massive and branching corals found?
*Back reef, where light is abundant and sedimentation is high
b) segment B, 2:50 3:24
1. What is the benefit of a coral having a massive or branching shape?
*Allows sediments to be removed more easily.
