Hard coral connectivity

Hard corals are foundational species on coral reefs. Through the production of calcium carbonate skeletons, hard corals create the physical substrate and three-dimensional structure that supports the vast diversity of organisms that comprise coral reef ecosystems. While they build physical structures that can tower hundreds of metres above the seafloor and create oceanic barriers thousands of kilometres in length, corals are actually simple animals closely related to jellyfish.
