Age and growth of the cold-water scleractinian Solenosmilia variabilis and its reef on SW Pacific seamounts

Fallon, Stewart; Thresher, R.E.; Adkins, J

Description

Little is known about growth rates of deep-water reef-forming corals or the rates at which these reefs accumulate. Such information is critical for determining the resilience of the reefs to anthropogenic impacts such as trawling and climate change. We radiocarbon date live-caught and sub-fossil samples of the bioherm-forming coral Solenosmilia variabilis collected from precisely known depths and locations by means of a remotely operated vehicle on seamounts south of Tasmania, Australia.
