Figure 9. SEM of the tips of growing septa of Porites lutea over the diurnal cycle. Extension occurs by growth of fine spikes like fingers on a hand (a). At night, calcification results in elongation of the fingers by accretion of new calcification centers at the growing tips. Thus the septal

... O and Sr/Ca for the 20th century (1917–2007) from a Porites lutea colony from the Maldives (northwestern Indian Ocean). Previous studies of annual mean extension rates of this coral revealed a distinct dependency of coral growth on variations of sea surface temperature (SST) and hydraulic energy...

... of reef-front massive corals, notably Porites lutea . Splitting of massive corals is greatly aided by the boring action of Upogebia sp. shrimps and by planes of weakness developed within the colony skeleton by nestling bivalves. The large size of toppled blocks ensures that some of the uppermost polyps...
