I am trying to find info on growth rates of soft corals of the
Dendronephthya sp. as a possible means of estimating the sinking date of a
Is it possible to estimate a time scale with softcorals as they do not
produce skeletons, and growth rates (size), might be dependant on other
factors, ie food sources and light penetration?
Is there any literature as to the length of time colonies might take to
establish themselves on an artificial reef or wreck?
Any info would be a great help.
