Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Depth based from occurrence (Ref. 8294); to be replaced with a better reference. On upper reef slopes (Ref. 98471). Zooxanthellae (Ref. 19). Hermaphroditic (Ref. 113708). Mature gametes are shed into the coelenteron and spawned through the mouth. Life cycle: The zygote develops into a planktonic planula larva. Metamorphosis begins with early morphogenesis of tentacles, septa and pharynx before larval settlement on the aboral end (Ref. 833).
