Hello coral listers:

Has anyone measured, besides whole colonies, ramets of Montastraea annularis to develop the size structure of a population? Is there a clue to a certain size before fission? 
I think that although each ramet belongs to a certain colony, it is the size of the ramet that matters because function depends on each column and the amount of tissue it has. Opinions are very welcome.

Thank you
