Sexual reproduction coral polyps

Corals without zooxanthelle ahermatypic corals feed exclusively on prey found in the water using their tentacles and nematocysts stinging cells. When live prey, such as plankton, passes over the coral polyp, it releases barbed harpoon-like nematocysts to stun the prey so that it can be pulled back towards its mouth by its tentacles. These feeding behaviours are generally carried out at night and are collectively known as heterotrophic feeding. Corals that host zooxanthelle hermatypic corals rely heavily on autotrophic feeding activity which involves the zooxanthelle and sunlight. As the zooxanthelle photosynthesis they use the carbon dioxide respired by the polyp animal, water and sunlight to produce high energy nutrients and oxygen which they then share with their coral host.

Abstract Pocillopora damicornis is one of the best studied reef-building corals, yet it's somewhat unique reproductive strategy remains poorly understood. Genetic studies indicate that P.

Coral feeding and nutrition

Sexual reproduction Like many marine invertebrates, corals have a two-phase life cycle, a planktonic larval phase and a sessile adult phase, where most species live attached to the reef. Also like most marine invertebrates, corals have only minor control of dispersal; they can control the time of release of larvae and they can control the time the larvae remain afloat, or at least the physiological timing of larval development and period of competency before settlement from the plankton and metamorphosis are necessary. Periods of larval competency and times to settlement and metamorphosis can range from as little as several hours for some brooding coral species to several months for the longest-lived larvae of some broadcast spawning species, with obvious implications for dispersal. For the reproductively-mature adult corals, timing is doubly important because males and females cannot move into reproductive contact: species which spawn must release their gametes into the water simultaneously. As colonies may be a long way apart, this release must be both precisely and broadly synchronised.

Corals can reproduce asexually and sexually Spawning in Boulder star coral Corals reproduce asexually by budding or fragmentation. In fragmentation, an entire colony rather than just a polyp branches off to form a new colony. This may happen, for example, if a larger colony is broken off from the main colony during a storm or boat grounding. In terms of sexual reproduction, some coral species, such as Brain and Star coral, produce both sperm and eggs at the same time.
