|Title:||Flesh or bone? Quantifying small-scale coral morphology using with-tissue and without-tissue techniques||Authors:||Todd, P.A.
|Issue Date:||Aug-2004||Citation:||Todd, P.A.,Ladle, R.J.,Lewin-Koh, N.J.I.,Chou, L.M. (2004-08). Flesh or bone? Quantifying small-scale coral morphology using with-tissue and without-tissue techniques. Marine Biology 145 (2) : 323-328. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||The quantification of small-scale coral morphology using tissue-free skeletons often requires colonies, or colony sections, to be removed from the reef. This undesirable destruction can be reduced by using a with-tissue technique based on photographic images of living corals. The results of this study indicate that with-tissue multivariate morphometric data contain similar information to skeleton-derived data and can help identify phenotypic plasticity in the massive coral Favia speciosa. With-tissue data can also be used to discern changes with time in individual polyps exposed to new environments. © Springer-Verlag 2004.||Source Title:||Marine Biology||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/100692||ISSN:||00253162|
