Senescence and dying signals in a reef building coral

B. Rinkevich, Y. Loya

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Decreases in two physiological processes (reproduction and growth) have been shown to precede the advent of colony death in the branching coral Stylophora pistillata. These diminutions were sometimes detectable even 6 months and more before any first visible sign of tissue mortality was observed.
