Abstract

Fragmentation in scleractinian corals has been recognized as an important facet in the life history portrait of many species. Fragments (ramets) isolated from existing genets may establish new colonies; a phenomenon that is widely used in a variety of management measures, including restoration of denuded coral reef areas. An analysis of regenerating branches of the Indo-Pacific coral Stylophora pistillata reveals that the architectural complexity of isolated branches may have a significant impact on the initiation of the regeneration process towards the typical structure and complexity of an intact colony. It is suggested that the 3-D structure complexity of isolated ramets should be taken into consideration when applying reef restoration practices.
